Nottinghamshire police have been high on our list of constabularies that have not been performing, and we have kept at them...
Today, Nottinghamshire Police has apologised to shooters in the East Midlands for long delays in both the grant and renewal of firearm and shotgun applications. In an open letter to BASC, Nottinghamshire Police said the delays were partly due to internal and staffing problems and also due to more rigorous assessments of applications.
Nottinghamshire Constabulary has confirmed it has allocated more resources to firearms licensing and aims to be processing applications within twelve weeks by the end of 2013. It also intends to work closely with BASC to improve service delivery and overall efficiency to shooters in Nottinghamshire.
So far so good, but please if you are in this licencing area let me know if they are not delivering as they should be, I accept it may take a little while for them to get on top of things but they have promised, lets make sure they deliver
