Officers around Ashbourne heading out on the road as part of Operation Illuminate

Posted on 18th June 2015

Safer Neighbourhood officers from Ashbourne and the surrounding areas are gearing up to encourage residents to boost home and outbuilding security as part of a targeted campaign.

Team members from Ashbourne, Marston and Clifton, and Hulland and Brailsford, will be taking to the road to host a mobile police surgery on Saturday, July 11.

The day-long event will see the policing team visiting a number of towns and villages throughout the area to offer advice on summer security.

Officers will be on hand at the following times and locations:

• Sudbury                     10am to 11am;

• Doveridge                  11.15am to 1pm;

• Marston                     1.45pm to 2.30pm;

• Clifton                        3pm to 4pm.

The event is part of the Derbyshire Dales Community Safety Partnership’s Operation Illuminate campaign, which is led by police and Derbyshire Dales District Council.

Throughout the day, officers will be on hand to offer crime prevention advice and tips to help homeowners to further protect themselves from becoming a victim of crime.

Residents will also have the opportunity to pick up cut-price home security items such as door chimes, alarms, timer switches and property marking kits such as SmartWater.
