Belper officers team up to ensure crime-free community fair

Posted on 24th October 2014

Police will be heading out on the beat to help keep Belper residents safe and ensure that they enjoy a crime-free community fair.

Officers from the Belper Safer Neighbourhood Team will be carrying out patrols in the area to allow residents to enjoy the upcoming event in a safe and secure environment.

A/Sergeant Neil Hopwell said: “Our aim during the event is to help the public have a good time by minimising any disruption or anti-social behaviour at the fair.

“We will be carrying out patrols and will be available to chat to residents should they have any issues or concerns.

“Most importantly, we would like to see residents out enjoying the annual fair and I hope that this message will encourage families and residents to attend the event knowing that we will be in attendance.”

The annual Belper Fair will take place on the Market Place from Thursday, October 30 to Saturday, November 1.

To speak to the Belper Safer Neighbourhood Team call 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.
