Neighbourhood Watch (NottsWatch ®) represents the interests of Neighbourhood Watch members throughout the city and county of Nottinghamshire and hosts annual conferences for its members.
This year’s theme was the Changing Face of Crime, ironically held the day after the cyber-attack on our NHS! Paddy Tipping, our Police and Crime Commissioner, admitted the police need to improve their understanding of cybercrime and that required investment in people with the relevant skills. He understands that communities feel comforted by seeing Bobbies on the beat but statistics show a decrease in traditional crimes such as burglary. How much easier/safer for a criminal to make money, via internet/phone fraud?
We were fortunate to have five excellent speakers including the newly appointed Deputy Chief Constable, Rachel Barber and DI Les Charlton from Notts Police’s Digital Investigation and Intelligence Unit. Les gave an interesting insight into modern crime trends, plus sound advice to avoid becoming a victim of cybercrime.
Our Annual General Meeting followed the conference at which our two Chairmen, Mr John Wood and Dr David Rhodes, elected since the amalgamation of the County NottsWatch and City CNNWC, resigned.
An Executive meeting of the Trustees followed the A.G.M. to elect new Officers. See “Who are we” for details.
Full details of the Conference and A.G.M. can be read at www.nottswatch.co.uk from our “About Us” page or via the hyperlinks above.
