Officers take Safer Together and road safety themes to Shirebrook Community Heritage Day

Alert message sent 03/05/2019 15:24:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

Our officers will be meeting local residents and taking our Safer Together campaign to the Shirebrook Community Heritage Day this weekend.

The Shirebrook Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team will be at the Community Heritage event this Sunday (May 5), to speak to residents about any concerns, and to share our Safer Together campaign, an initiative which 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.

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, residents will be encouraged to sign up to Derbyshire Alert to receive targeted information about crime, scams and crime prevention initiatives in their area. Officers will also be sharing road safety advice and information.

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.

The Community Heritage event will take place between 12 noon and 4pm at the village hall on Park Road, Shirebrook. There will also be a BBQ, live music, activities for the kids and a local quiz.
