Hasland beat sweep to launch with Safer Together event this weekend

Alert message sent 09/07/2019 16:35:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

We’re inviting residents along to Eastwood Park in Hasland this weekend for an emergency services event which will help us launch a week long beat sweep to target community concerns.

Residents and visitors will get the chance to meet members of their local Safer Neighbourhood policing team, our roads policing unit, dog section, drones unit and Derbyshire Fire and Rescue service.

East Midlands Ambulance Service volunteer Community First Responders will be on hand to share the work they do to support ambulance crews, along with council officers and Neighbourhood Watch.

The public will get chance to chat and have pictures taken, and also sign up to Derbyshire Alert to receive targeted information about crime, scams and crime prevention initiatives in their area.

It will take place between 10am and 2pm this Saturday (July 13) and launches a beat sweep of the area, where officers, partnership agencies and the community work together to issues or concerns around anti-social behaviour and crime in the area.

Temporary Sergeant Kelly Brown, who is currently leading the Safer Neighbourhood policing teams in the Chesterfield area, said: “We’re working together with other emergency services and agencies to hold an event for the community in Hasland, to give residents a chance to get to know us and to launch our beat sweep.

“From Monday, our officers will be taking part in a week of action in the Hasland area, working with partnership agencies to target community concerns relating to anti-social behaviour and crime.  This week is aimed at getting the community involved so they can continue on with keeping their area safe and improving it.

“We look forward to meeting local residents and community members, and finding out more about any issues or concerns they may have.”

The event and initiative has been set up as part of the Safer Together campaign which marks new investment in the force that will see 120 new posts created working to improve police presence in neighbourhoods and bolster investigations.

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.

Recruitment to the new roles is under way with posts all due to be in place by the end of July.
Investment will also be put towards improving road safety and providing greater support to vulnerable people, including those in mental health crisis.

If you would like to speak to your local policing team about any concerns or issues, you can make contact using any of the following non-emergency contact methods: The team also have their own local social media pages, on their Facebook, www.facebook.com/HaslandSNT or on Twitter, @ChesterfieldSNT.
