"Funds are available to employ 6,000 additional officers, across England and Wales, by the end of March 2021.

"I'm campaigning hard for Nottinghamshire to receive its fair share. We are bidding for 150 extra officers this year and a further 150 next year. Local residents want to see a more visible police presence on the streets and in their neighbourhoods and I am working with the Chief Constable to deliver that."
