Improving Newark's night-time economy policing a priority for new district inspector
Building on improvements to Newark’s night-time economy policing will be a priority for new Inspector Charlotte Allardice.
She says experience of working in the city and in its conurbations at night over 16 years of service will benefit Newark and the district’s other towns.
Inspector Allardice has worked as a response officer on the Broxtowe estate, the burglary team at Oxclose Lane, CID, and response in The Meadows, city and south of the county. She became a response inspector in 2019.
Inspector Allardice said: “This is a brilliant opportunity and fulfils a long-term aspiration to move into neighbourhood policing.
“I’m looking forward to taking ownership of an area and problem-solving for that community.
“The complexities that I have dealt with over my career give me a strong foundation in the basics of policing and, having dealt with some some really horrible crimes in the past, am hopeful of being able to prevent things escalating to that point in the first place through interventions.
“I grew up in the countryside so this is very much full circle for me.
“One thing I will be prioritising as we enter the summer months is building on the good work already done around the night-time economy to make sure people can go out and enjoy themselves with the reasonable expectation of safety.”
