Dales rural crime team new volunteers- Sept 18

Two new Police Support Volunteers have joined our rural crime team to help out with crime prevention in the Derbyshire Dales.

Mark Ryder and Ian Lees have joined current Police Support Volunteer Marilyn Barratt to help officers on the unit to help engage with rural communities in the area and advice around security.

As part of their work, the volunteers are aiming to visit each and every working farm in the Derbyshire Dales to carry out crime prevention surveys.

Sgt. James Shirley, of the Derbyshire Rural Crime Team, said: “We are really pleased to welcome Mark and Ian to the team, and are grateful for the work of all our volunteers which will help us to reach as many members of our rural communities in the Derbyshire Dales as we can.

“The advice they can offer is very valuable and could help people to reduce the risk of their properties, and livelihoods, being affected by crime.”

If you would like to book a crime prevention survey with volunteers working with the Derbyshire Rural Crime Team, email DRCT@derbyshire.pnn.police.uk, or use one of the following non-emergency contact methods.

You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
