Sgt Olga Hansen was present at both community council meetings earlier in the week to deliver the latest police report and answer questions from the councillors or members of the community. Here's a summary of the statistics she had for April:
"The detection rate in the Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey area was 74.7% . In Nairn there were 8 petty assaults and 2 more serious assaults. 19 breaches of the peace, 21 noise calls, 6 domestic incidents, 21 positive drug searches and 2 houses searched which resulted in sufficient evidence for persons to be reported as being concerned in the supply of drugs. There were 7 child protection cases and 10 reports of vandalism. 1 drunk driver and 7 crimes of dishonesty. 15 road traffic collisions, 6 vehicles with no insurance, 7 people caught using mobile phones while driving, and various other tax and motoring offences concerning vehicles e.g. no seat belt."
On Wednesday night Sgt Hansen was questioned by the Westies on litter and other matters. More of that on the Gurn this weekend if time permits.
