A survey of Nottinghamshire’s black and ethnic communities has found they were more than twice as likely to be victims of crime than the national average.
The County’s Police Commissioner Paddy Tipping ordered the research so he could provide and fair and equal policing service. The findings show:
- The older age groups were 30% more likely to be victims of crime (over 35) than the younger age groups (under 25)
- Males had been victims of crime at a higher rate (58%) than females (40%) and more likely to be repeat victims of crime
- 47.5% of crime victims who reported it to the police rated how the police dealt with it as either "poor " or "very poor"
- Almost a half of respondents (48.5%) would not consider working for the police and 18.5% would consider it
