In an emergency always call 999

Hasland and St Leonards officers want to hear your views on neighbourhood policing

Posted on 27th April 2015

Officers from the Hasland and St Leonards Safer Neighbourhood Team are encouraging residents to help set the policing profile for their community.

Sergeant March Church, PC Lee Welsby and PCSO's Janet Austin and Scott Wilson are set to host their next priority meeting from 6.45pm on Thursday, May 14.

The meeting, which will take place at the youth club in the grounds of Hasland Hall Community School, is a chance for local residents to raise concerns about crime in their area with the team.

Police will then set neighbourhood priorities to focus on for the following three months, based on feedback from the public.

The current priority sees the team tackling anti-social behaviour across the community, including Eastwood Park, Hasland Village, Hady, and Spital.

The team have been carrying out increased patrols to help deter any offenders and to advise them about their behaviour. Alcohol has been seized from underage drinkers and warning letters were issued to parents.

Local residents and park users were also encouraged to report any nuisance or suspicious activity to their local policing team so that the issue could be addressed.

If you are unable to attend the meeting but would like to put forward any issues contact your local Safer Neighbourhood policing team on 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.
