Curbar camera cover receives boost as police zoom in on crime

Posted on 11th February 2013

Police are turning the lens on crime prevention by installing a number of CCTV cameras throughout the village of Curbar.

The devices have been placed by the Hathersage Safer Neighbourhood Team to help police keep the area safe.

They will be used to investigate any crimes committed in the area and to provide reassurance to residents that the village is covered by CCTV.

Warning signs alerting people that CCTV cameras cover the area have also been placed throughout the village.

The cameras have been funded by Derbyshire police and Curbar Parish Council.

PCSO Anthony Boswell, from the Safer Neighbourhood team, said: “These cameras will be extremely useful in helping us to keep the village and its residents safe.

“They will act as a great deterrent to criminals and, if a crime is committed, may help us track down the offenders.

“The cameras will be a great asset to the community and the Safer Neighbourhood team.”

To speak to officers from Hathersage Safer Neighbourhood Team, call 101.
