Ashbourne officers set to host Neighbourhood Watch and security event

Posted on 17th June 2015

The Ashbourne Safer Neighbourhood Team will be heading out to chat to passers-by about Neighbourhood Watch and crime prevention at an upcoming community event.

Officers will be teaming up to offer advice on stepping up home security over the summer months, and also speaking to people about the benefits of Neighbourhood Watch groups and how they can get involved.

The policing team will be hosting the stall on Saturday, July 4 at the Horse and Jockey Yard, off St. John Street, Ashbourne.

The event, which will run between 10am and 4pm, 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.

Residents will also 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.
