What is Community Protection?

What is Community Protection

Community Protection is a unique service, set up to tackle antisocial behaviour and environmental crime in Nottingham. Our vision is simple – to create a safe and clean environment in every one of the city’s neighbourhoods.


Our nationally acclaimed partnership is made up of Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire Police functions with officers providing a local presence in every city neighbourhood and a network of specialist departments including Environmental Health and Trading Standards. This means that whatever the ASB or environmental crime issue, we are equipped to help.


We have more than 100 Community Protection Officers (CPOs) providing a visible presence in every neighbourhood, working within local neighbourhood policing teams to provide a friendly and fast response to neighbourhood issues.


Our Service Centre helpline provides a single point of contact to ensure that whatever the issue, the call is directed to the right team or agency 0115 915 2020

More about your Community Protection

Individuals who are identified as persistent offenders are referred to Community Protection's antisocial behaviour teams who use civil enforcement tools such as Injunctions, Public Space Protection Orders and Dispersal powers to crackdown and control antisocial and criminal behaviour.


Community Protection has received national recognition for its innovative use of civil orders in dealing with criminal activity.


Our Service Centre, which operates a confidential helpline for Nottingham City residents, is there to deal with a wide range of issues such as fly-tipping, graffiti, vandalism and abandoned cars. Officers are dispatched to deal with the problem or customers are signposted to the relevant agency to help solve their issue.


Remember, if we don’t know, we can’t help.
