Residents in Calver have been picking up tips on how to better protect themselves from crime following a visit from their local Safer Neighbourhood officer.
PCSO Ian Phipps joined the Calver, Curbar and Froggatt Senior Citizen’s Club for their meeting at Calver Methodist Church on Thursday, November 10.
Throughout the afternoon, PCSO Phipps spoke to the group about his role as a police community support officer and offered advice on how they can boost security and protect themselves from thieves.
Residents also picked up purse chains to help keep safe from pick pockets when out and about.
PCSO Ian Phipps from the Tideswell, Litton, Baslow and Beeley Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “It was a great opportunity to be invited along to the Calver, Curbar and Froggatt Senior Citizen’s Club to offer advice.
“Calver, Curbar and Froggatt are lovely, safe places to live, however it is important not to become complacent with security. We discussed a wide range of topics from door step callers to distraction burglary and telephone scams.
“It was a very worthwhile afternoon and I hope the residents were able to pick up some good security tips.”
