In an emergency always call 999

Fun emergency services event to take place in Staveley this weekend

Posted on 12th October 2018

Residents in the Staveley area can come say hello to their local policing team, check out the work of one of our specialist public order and search teams and meet firefighters from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service.

The free event will take place between 10am and 2pm on Saturday, October 13 on the Market Place at Staveley.

There will be a chance for people and youngsters to take a look around police and fire vehicles, find out more about their work, check out some of their specialist equipment and pick up safety advice.

PC Kelly Brown of the local Safer Neighbourhood policing team has been involved in organising the event.

She said: “We’re looking forward to meeting members of our local community and having the opportunity to share the work of our specialist teams.

“It’s also a chance to speak to us about any issues or concerns you have, or pick up advice on safety and security issues.”

We’re also inviting people to take part in our online initiative to show our officers engaging in our diverse local communities by collecting photographs of our officers and the people they meet.

If you want to take part please ask the officer for a picture or selfie and tag us on Twitter (@DerbysPolice) and Instagram (@derbyshireconstabulary) with the hashtag #CopASelfie.
