Home security campaign rescheduled after snow cancels village visit

Posted on 18th February 2013

An operation aimed at helping Derbyshire Dales residents protect their homes from burglary will head to the village of Monyash next month.

The Operation Illuminate visit was originally due in mid-January but was shelved after a bout of heavy snowfall in the days leading up to it.

Police will now be heading to Monyash on Thursday, March 21.

During that visit, they will be taking the mobile police station stocked with a wide range of cut-price home security gear including outdoor lights, timer switches, door chimes and shed alarms.

The operation is being led by Derbyshire police and Derbyshire Dales District Council, part of the area’s Community Safety Partnership.

It aims to help residents across the Derbyshire Dales make their homes more secure during the darker nights.

Among the items that will be on offer to Monyash residents are:

  • Shed alarms £5 (RRP £8)
  • Indoor light bulbs £2 (RRP £4)
  • Outdoor light bulbs £5 (RRP £8)
  • Timer switches £1 (RRP £4)
  • Door chimes £1 (RRP £2)

You can also pick these reduced products up at police stations across the area or at Derbyshire Dales District Council offices.
