Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

There’s a chance to meet your local Safer Neighbourhood policing team and other organisations as they head to Crays Hill Park in Leabrooks this Saturday.

The Somercotes and Riddings Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team has set up an event called The Big Meet, which will give Leabrooks residents the chance to find out more about the organisations and services in the area in one place.

Safer Together has been launched to help demonstrate how the extra £24 each household is paying into policing, through their council tax, 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

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.

At the event, which will take place between 12 noon and 4pm this Saturday (May 4), people will be able to chat to their local Safer Neighbourhood policing team about any issues or concerns, and also speak to officers and staff from various uniformed and armed services, local charity groups, social groups, schools and councils

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.

Recruitment to an extra 120 new roles is under way with posts all due to be in place by the end of July. The roles include police officers, PCSOs, investigators along with other roles designed to enhance local policing teams and improve problem solving and investigations capacity.
