Public asked for opinion on crime
People in part of Nottinghamshire are being asked for their thoughts on fighting crime.

The Home Office estimates crime costs residents and businesses in Newark and Sherwood more than 90m every year.

Now the Community Safety Partnership is drawing up a list of targets, including tackling crime in the worst-hit areas such as Newark Town Centre.

Public meetings are taking place at Ollerton Town Hall on Tuesday and at Newark Town Hall on Wednesday.

While the district has a lower crime rate than the rest of Nottinghamshire, recorded crime is still increasing.

The local council wants to know about people's priorities to inform a strategy for the next three years.

It has already indicated it wants to improve support available for victims of domestic violence and racial incidents.
