Out on the beat

Alert message sent 17/07/2020 22:37:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary


Safer Neighbourhood Officers from Cotton Lane have been out on the beat in the Chellaston and Alvaston area, following up the issue with nuisance off road bikes.

The second stage of their project aimed at tackling the nuisance bikes began a few weeks ago, and so far, the results have been very positive:
  • 5 motorbikes have been seized, for no insurance or stolen
  • 2 Community Protection Warnings escalated to Community Protection Notices which can result in fines of up to £100 for each breach. One fine has already been issued.
  • 2 calls to our control room regarding the bikes in the last 3 weeks, compared to 12 the previous 2 weeks.
  • Leaflet drop and bespoke posters in the most affected areas
You may have seen officers around Calvery Woods and Infinity Parkway, 2 pit bikes were seen by Alvaston and Boulton Safer Neighbourhood Team and a 10-minute foot chase through fields and Woodlands resulted in them actually CATCHING UP with the obviously surprised riders of the bikes, who promptly gave up and had their bikes seized when back up arrived.

As always, your assistance and support are invaluable to us so please contact us via messenger with any concerns regarding these bikes, or other issues in the community.
