Bolsover and Clowne Police SNT Update

Bolsover and Clowne Police SNT Update

What have we done this weekend?


Due to recent incidents of ASB and criminality in Bolsover Town Centre caused by problem teens, the evening started with ASB patrols there. This resulted in the arrest of a teenager who was wanted on court warrant for failing to appear at court in the West Midlands.

We also attended a report of a small fire on Hornscroft Park along with the fire service. Another teenager was stopped and spoken with as the moped he was riding was showing no insurance.

We assisted response officers in an area search following an assault in one of the town centre pubs.

Next up was a male trying house doors, this turned out to be a very intoxicated male unaware of where he was. He was dealt with, and a safeguarding referral put in due to what he disclosed.

In Whitwell officers conducted joint reassurance patrols with the fire service, as well as patrolling ASB hot spots.

We also conducted patrols in Clowne and checked on reported ASB involving vehicles in Clowne Tesco Car park.

In Creswell officers have taken reports of ASB and criminality happening on King Street. Officers spent several hours over the weekend down there gathering evidence and speaking with residents. We will be making more appearances there and will be working closely with our licensing team and the council to reduce the disruption being caused on the street.


The evening started again with patrols in Bolsover Town Centre, which saw a significant reduction in the amount of teenagers present.

Officers then travelled over to Shirebrook Police SNT to assist our colleagues who had detained a female. She was searched and a lock knife and drugs were found on her. She was interviewed by officers from Shirebrook about this on Saturday night. #Teamwork (we repaid the good nature of the Shirebrook officers who came into Bolsover the night before to help us)

In Creswell further patrols were conducted on King Street. Whilst there, officers were made aware of a domestic assault. The team took details from the female and then arrested the male. Initial safeguard ensured no further assaults occurred and the male was taken to Ripley Custody by response officers whilst we stayed with the female to try and obtain a full account.


The team caught up on some paperwork and then headed out on patrol again.

Reports of a planned car meet at Clay Cross and in Doe Lea meant we were on standby to disperse the vehicles and enforce road safety.

The report turned out to be correct and it saw the team travel over to the area, where there was a reported 200+ cars. Officers from the Roads Policing Unit issued tickets to offending drivers. Whilst we took the opportunity to enforce the speed limits through Heath and Holmewood towards Junction 29. The other half of the team and officers from Shirebrook did the same on the Doe Lea stretch.

By this time, it was home time.

We will be back patrolling today as well as carrying out a planned operation.
