The Cream Always Rises To The Top…

In December 2008, Cllr Murray-Carr was looking forward to continuing in his role as Community Safety Chief. In May 2009 during Cllr Eion Watts’s reshuffle he has been removed. We are still waiting to see who has replaced him. Cllr Murray-Carr has done more for Barlborough than our own elected representatives – Cllr Watts and Gilmour. Among many things, he has asked that the McDonald’s planning application go to a full planning meeting for it to be decided, rather than it just being decided by the planning officer. Watsy and Gilmour (as usual) did nothing. Cllr Murray-Carr, loved by the police, obviously had to go – what a shame. The cream always rises to the top, so hopefully he will re-surface…
 

brian-murray-carr-award1‘Award For Crimefighter  A successful crimefighter has been honoured with a top award after working with police to bring offenders to justice and reduce anti-social behaviour. Cllr Brian Murray-Carr, Bolsover District councillor and community safety chief, received a Derbyshire Constabulary Celebrating Achievement framed certificate during a prestigious ceremony at force headquarters. Insp David Stone, of Bolsover police, said: “We’ve done a lot of joint operations together to tackle crime and nuisance behaviour and our partnership is second to none.

“Cllr Murray-Carr has helped set up many initiatives which have resulted in arrests and convictions for all kinds of offences with effective reductions in crime. “He has gone on patrols, talks to people and takes concerns to heart and sees problems through to the end until they’ve been resolved.” Cllr Murray-Carr has helped set up schemes in Bolsover, Shirebrook, Clowne and across the district aimed at improving the quality of life for troubled residents.

They have included crackdowns on under-age drinking, off-road motorcyclists, fuel thefts, vandalism, nuisance neighbours and drug-dealing as well as introducing CCTV programmes. Speaking about his award Cllr Murray-Carr said: “I’m delighted with this honour and look forward to continuing work with police and communities.”‘
