Officers are encouraging Hathersage residents to sign up to Derbyshire Alert

Posted on 20th February 2014

The Hathersage Safer Neighbourhood team are encouraging residents to sign up to the Derbyshire Alert messaging service to be kept in the know about policing issues in their community.

Officers are appealing to people living in Safer Neighbourhood areas of Hathersage, Bradwell, Eyam, Grindleford and the surrounding villages, to sign up to the free scheme.

PCSO Anthony Boswell from the Hathersage policing team said: “The system is a great way for residents to receive information directly about crimes, suspicious activity and police events for their area.

“The more people that get on board with the scheme, the wider that we can spread the police message and help to bring criminals to justice.

“Information that we receive from the public about crimes and suspicious activity in the area is invaluable, and Derbyshire Alert is one way that we can quickly spread the message to alert other residents in the area.”

The free messaging service uses email, text messages and voicemail recordings to alert people across the county about any local policing issues and crime prevention advice to help increase their personal and home security.

To find out more about Derbyshire Alert and to sign up to the free service, visit www.derbyshirealert.co.uk or www.derbyshire.police.uk.  

You can register online on the Alert website, or you can call 101 and speak to your local Safer Neighbourhood Team officers about signing up.

Alternatively, registration forms are stocked in all police enquiry offices.
