IF IT ISN’T REPORTED – IT ISN’T HAPPENING!
We often have residents reporting to the Parish Council Office that they are concerned when issues of anti-social behaviour occur in the village and want to know what they can/should do about it. We have spoken to our local Beat Manager and this is the advice we have received:
1) If you feel threatened or worried, ring 999 immediately
2) If you want to report an event that you have witnessed or are witnessing, ring the Main Control Room immediately. The number is 101.
By doing this, the event will be logged and reported as an incident in Ruddington. You can, if you prefer, ring either the Beat Manager or the PCSO and if they answer immediately, they will respond to your call. However, if they do not answer the call, or if the call is diverted or switches to an answerphone, please ring the Main Control Room as before.
