Duckmanton residents pick up security items as a police visit to help keep them safe

Posted on 1st December 2016

Police in Duckmanton have been offering residents advice on home security and the chance to pick up security items.

Police Community Support Officers Janis Naylor and Anna Kelsey held a special crime prevention event at Markham Court on Thursday, November 17.

The event was set up to offer residents advice and information about protecting themselves and their property in the run up to Christmas, and throughout the year.

PCSO Janis Naylor, of the Safer Neighbourhood policing team which covers the Duckmanton area, said: “It was a great opportunity for us to meet with local residents and to offer advice on personal and home security. People were also able to pick up items such as purse chains and alarms.

“We were also able to introduce ourselves and talk to them about the work of the local Safer Neighbourhood policing team. Most importantly though, our aim was to remind people of the things they can do to help keep themselves and their valuables safe.”

To contact your local Safer Neighbourhood policing team call 101, the non emergency number for Derbyshire police, or visit the website: www.derbyshire.police.uk.
