Operation Torpedo - tackling burglaries across the Glossop area by travelling criminals

Issue Date:
Issue was set on 19/02/2013
Actions to be taken are as follows:
  • Operation Torpedo 2 followed on from a previous police campaign targeting travelling criminals who are committing burglaries in the Glossop area, including across Hadfield.
  • The campaign, in partnership with GMP, targeted the problem by making it harder for criminals to travel through the area. This included using cameras that can track suspect vehicles across the area so officers can intercept them.
  • Police also boosted patrols at key times and headed out into the community to offer crime prevention advice and tips to residents on how they could protect their property better. A 'footprint' leaflet campaign also saw officers posting the leaflets through insecure doors or windows, alerting the homeowner that their home could just as easily have been targeted by a burglar, and offering advice on how to prevent that happening.
  • Members of the public were encouraged to call police if they saw anything suspicious, and many were signed up to Derbyshire Alert, a free police messaging service that keeps them in the loop about crime trends and incidents.
  • This operation ended in the autumn months of 2013.

I am Sergeant 1967 Phil Booth and I have responsibility for this Safer Neighbourhood team.

I have been a police officer in Derbyshire since 1995 and have covered a wide range of roles in that time, including response Sergeant in Buxton and six and a half years as a traffic Sergeant.

My priority for the area is to address the specific concerns of the local community and to build on the already positive relationship we have with our partners. I also want to foster new relationships with community groups in the area, to see how we can work together to better serve the people who live here.

Safer Neighbourhood Meetings

Safer Neighbourhood meetings give you the opportunity to set the agenda in your area and help implement lasting solutions.

Crime Information


Crime Mapping allows us to show you where crime is happening at a local level, so we can better engage with our communities and help them determine how best to police the area they live in.
