Tideswell and Bakewell residents encouraged to have their say

Posted on 13th May 2015

Residents living in Bakewell, Tideswell and surrounding villages are being encouraged to help shape neighbourhood policing in their communities.

Safer Neighbourhood officers from Bakewell and Tideswell are teaming up to host a joint priority meeting to give residents the opportunity to set policing priorities for their community.

Officers will listen to issues that matter most to residents and then use this feedback to set the next set of priorities.

The meeting will run from 6pm on Wednesday, May 27 at Bakewell Children's Centre.

Officers from the Bakewell, Sheldon Over Haddon and Ashford Safer Neighbourhood Team are currently focusing on raising awareness of the Farmwatch scheme to help to cut crime in the rural communities.

The team are also working to combat speeding motorists along Baslow Road by carrying out regular speed checks on roads in the area.

Following the previous meeting, there were no neighbourhood concerns raised by residents from the Tideswell, Litton, Baslow and Beeley Safer Neighbourhood areas.

If you cannot attend the meeting but have an issue that you would like to raise, you can contact the team by calling 101.
