Statement in response to Guardian article

The incident happened on 14 April 2013 at about 11.45am in Loughborough Road, West Bridgford.

Phil Hallam, neighbourhood inspector for Rushcliffe, said: “We can confirm that we attended this incident and as a result of our investigation the car driver involved was found to be at fault and has been ordered to attend a National Driver Alertness Course. A woman was also cautioned as a result of the public order offence.

“I am satisfied that the officers involved in the case have acted appropriately. In his email the Sergeant, himself a cyclist, clearly explains his course of action and is very open about the route of disposal that was taken and why. There was no intended inference of blame and it is unfortunate if this is how it was taken.”

Help us improve our website

Nottinghamshire Police is about to embark on a project to improve our website.

In 2011, it was visited more than 1 million times by 608,000 individuals. This shows how important it is that we get this right and provide a flexible and effective means of communicating with you, the people we serve.

Our aim is to provide a website that:

  • Enhances two-way communication between the force and you, the public;
  • Increases the level of confidence you have in Nottinghamshire Police;
  • Allows us to publish consistent and effective crime reduction and safety advice for the public, helping to inform the people we serve and prevent and drive down crime.

To achieve this, we would like your help. We would like you to give us feedback about the current website, if you feel able to, and tell us what you would like to see on an improved version of the site.

We want to know:

  • Do you regularly visit our website? If not, why is that?
  • Why do you visit our website? What information are you looking for?
  • How often do you visit our website?
  • What do you like about the current Nottinghamshire Police website?
  • What do you dislike about the current Nottinghamshire Police website?
  • Are there any parts of the website you find difficult to use? If so, why is that?
  • What information would you like to see on an improved website?
  • What do you think would encourage people who have never visited the site before to take a look?

We are open to all suggestions and will be taking all of the feedback we receive into account when we are looking at the scope of the project.

We are also asking our own officers, staff and volunteers for their suggestions and input into the process.

Please email your feedback to by 5pm on Friday 2 November 2012.

Police Band needs you!

Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Gary Glover, the Director of Music of the Nottinghamshire Police Band (see my pic below!), a fifty piece Symphonic Wind Band based in the heart of Nottingham at our own rehearsal premises, 2 Broadway, Lace Market Nottingham. We rehearse each Wednesday evening from 7.30pm - 9.30pm and enjoy a challenging repertoire which encompasses all genre of music from Classical through to Big Band, Dance Band, Show Music and arrangements of contemporary Popular Music.

Although we enjoy a full balanced band we have carried a vacancy for a good kit player for too long! We have had various people come along to play with us however finding that rare individual who can play all styles of music and read music is proving a bit of a challenge. Someone who can drive the band and not just join in is what we are looking for.

Although we expect a professional performance, sadly we cannot pay players, however some expenses can be reimbursed. Other than these expenses we offer a friendly, musical environment in which to play a wide variety of music with some first rate players who share the common interest of music making. We play at a variety of venues throughout Nottinghamshire and beyond.

Please let me know if you can help!
