The petition\'s aim is to bring the council\'s attention to the lack of police presence in West Bridgford and the surrounding areas. There is a feeling of great concern in the community at the rise of crime (especially violent crime) over the last few years.
As the Central Avenue area of West Bridgford has been developed into a drinking centre and nightspot, the community feel there should be an adequate police presence to match the influx of revelers this attracts.
The incident that spurred this campaign was a brutal and unprovoked attack committed on friday the 4th of September. The 18 year old victim has been hospitalized with several fractures to his skull and bleeding on his brain. His condition is still serious. Because the culprits are still at large his name will be withheld.
This campaign\'s aim is to try and bring peace and stability back to West Bridgford and the surrounding areas with a larger presence of appropriately trained police officers and a fully staffed police station.
Thank you for your support.
