In an emergency always call 999

Police and housing officers take to the streets to tackle neighbourhood issues

Posted on 28th November 2013

Police and Dales Housing staff will be heading out on the beat to listen to neighbourhood issues during a ‘Through Your Eyes’ event.

The event will see officers from Hathersage and Bakewell Safer Neighbourhood Team heading out in the mobile police station on Friday, November 29 to listen to tenants about any concerns they may have in their community.

The event aims to find out what issues tenants and residents have, to identify solutions that police and partners can work on together and find out what tenants think about the services they receive.

PCSO Anthony Boswell from Hathersage Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “Events like this are a great way for us to work closely with our partners to help identify solutions to any neighbourhood concerns raised by tenants.

“We will be chatting to residents about crime prevention advice and the simple steps that they can take to further protect themselves from crime in the winter months.

“We will also be signing people up to Derbyshire Alert to help keep them up-to-date on policing issues in their community.”

The areas the Dales Housing staff and Safer Neighbourhood officers will visit include:

  •  8.30am to 9am: Eyam Primary School on Church Street
  •  9am to 10am: Eyam around New Close
  •  10.15am to 11am: Stoney Middleton around Meadow Close
  •  11.15am to 12.30pm: Calver around Smithy Knoll Road, Newburg Terrace and Riverside Close
  •  1.30pm to 2.30pm: Grindleford around Mount Pleasant and Mount Pleasant Road
  •  3.00pm to 4.00pm: Hathersage around The Crofts, Smithy Meadows and Station Road Flats

Jacque Allen, executive director at Dales Housing, added: “Partnership working is a key part of what we do and these joint events with the local police are a great example of this.

“They really help to reassure tenants and residents and provide them with sound advice on crime prevention.”
