Police and Neighbourhood Watch team up for Ashbourne event

Posted on 10th September 2014

Police and Neighbourhood Watch groups are teaming up to raise awareness of crime prevention in Ashbourne.

Officers from Ashbourne and the surrounding areas will be working alongside local Neighbourhood Watch groups to encourage residents to further protect themselves from crime.

The Safer Neighbourhood teams will be hosting the event on Saturday, September 20 at the Horse and Jockey Yard, off St. John Street, Ashbourne.

The event, which will run from 9.30am, will give people the opportunity to speak to the officers about any neighbourhood concerns they may have, along with gaining advice around improving their home, vehicle and personal security.

Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinators will also be on hand throughout the day to chat to people about the benefits of the scheme and how they can get involved.

Residents will be able to pick up home security kits during the event, including ‘dusk til dawn bulbs’, timers and door chimes at discounted prices.

For more information, call your local Safer Neighbourhood team on 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.
