Meet your local PCSOs in Glossop as part of the Safer Together campaign

Alert message sent 18/04/2019 15:22:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary


You can meet your local PCSOs and speak to them about any concerns, or pick up advice, as they hold a stall in Glossop town centre this weekend to mark the start of our Safer Together campaign.

The campaign marks the start of new investment in the force that will see 120 new posts created working to improve police presence in neighbourhoods and bolster investigations.

Residents are also being encouraged to sign up to Derbyshire Alert to receive targeted information about crime, scams and crime prevention initiatives in their area.

The investment came after consultation with the public revealed they were willing to pay extra in council tax to fund an increase in police resources in neighbourhoods and the Safer Together campaign aims to reach out and engage with residents and show how we are working as a partnership with other agencies, and investing into making Derbyshire safer.

It was officially launched in Chesterfield last week, and is due to be launched in Buxton and Derby next week and will kick start a series of other events taking place across the summer.

The initiative is being launched following the extra £24 each household is paying into policing through their council tax, which will see the recruitment of 120 additional officers and staff, increase police visibility, improve road safety, provide greater support to vulnerable people, including those in mental health crisis, and enhance investigative policing.

Recruitment to the new roles is under way with posts all due to be in place by the end of July.

You can meet your local PCSOs outside Natwest, on High Street West (next to Norfolk Square) between 1pm and 5pm on Saturday, April 20.

If you would like to sign up to Derbyshire Alert to receive free community safety alerts, crime information and messages from your local Safer Neighbourhood policing teams, visit: www.derbyshirealert.co.uk.
