Neighbourhood Watch road show heads out into the rural communities

Posted on 18th October 2013

Officers from the Bakewell and Hathersage Safer Neighbourhood Teams will be heading out on a Neighbourhood Watch road show.

The mobile police station will be hitting the road and making its way to villages in the rural areas of the Derbyshire Dales.

Officers will be taking centre stage on the square in Monyash village centre on Wednesday, October 23 between 3pm and 6pm.

The team will also be visiting Calver on Tuesday, October 29 between 10am and 1pm before moving to Eyam village from 1pm to 4pm.

PCSO Hayley Grundy and Anthony Boswell will be on hand to chat to local residents about the benefits of joining, or even setting up their own, Neighbourhood Watch scheme.

The events will give residents the chance to speak to the team about any issues affecting their communities and gain advice on crime prevention.

Officers will be encouraging members of the public to sign up to the free messaging service, Derbyshire Alert, which already has more than 20,700 people registered on the system.

Derbyshire Alert allows residents to receive messages quickly concerning community safety in their area by email, text or voicemail.
