As part of funding secured by the Nottinghamshire Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner - a bid for £3 million for Safer Streets projects across Nottinghamshire county, Mansfield District Council have been working closely with Nottinghamshire Police and other local partners to make Warsop's streets safer for all.

With a focus on women and girls, the project's ambition is to make the parish feel more secure, whilst reducing an associated fear of crime.

The scheme has also funded support for families and youth work to help prevent antisocial behaviour across the area. Through community engagement, the council and it's partners have been able to encourage young people to make alternative life choices by offering diversionary activities. The project has also funded the recent instalment of new CCTV equipment, enabling local authority to identify any crime and antisocial behaviour with precision.


New CCTV camera which has been installed on Warsop's main high-street

As of April 2023, eight of the eleven new state of the art high definition cameras have been installed, each of which provide 360-degrees of coverage from their individual locations. The purpose of the cameras is to focus on public spaces, whilst ensuring that the privacy of residents is maintained.

New CCTV locations include Clumber Street, Sherwood Street with Carr Lane Park, Coral Crescent and The Carrs Local Nature Reserve to follow. Four locations will become designated Safe Point emergency communication facilities, enabling direct contact with MDC CCTV control room. Locations can be seen on the map (link opens in new window).

In an emergency, residents will be able to input keywords displayed on all four new CCTV points into the what3words app, a geocode system designed to identify any location on the surface of Earth. Individuals will also be able to dial into the emergency refuge points that will be available on two of the new CCTV points.

As of April 2023, two new street light installations have been placed on Sherwood and Clumber Street. Eight are planned to be installed within The Carrs.

Public spaces and engagement 

Residents who feel worried, at risk or in danger will be offered refuge with businesses as part of a scheme to make people feel safer, enhance security and support vulnerable groups including women and girls. As of April 2023, six businesses have been given a Safe Space accreditation: Jins Chinese, the Plough Inn, Greetings Warsop, Cedars Vets and the Warsop Library.

As part of the accreditation, each premises will be given CCTV cameras and staff training on how to support people who come through their doors. You can read more about the scheme here:

A safety awareness course took place on 18 March 2023, which was hosted at Vibrant Warsop's HQ (Warsop Methodist Church) by MDC community safety staff and local business, Premier Security. The session covered important safety topics, such as 'understanding the threat', 'conflict and listening skills' and 'mediation'.

On Wednesday 22 February 2023, MDC staff took part in a day of action. This involved manual and mechanical sweeping teams clearing the town of any litter seen, alongside graffiti and fly tipping removal. Street cleansing works continue to be prioritised around Warsop town centre, supporting easily accessible streets and gateways.
