In an emergency always call 999

Mobile police surgeries head to Wirksworth and Middleton

Posted on 22nd January 2014

Officers will be heading out on the road to speak to residents about issues affecting their neighbourhood.  

The Wirksworth and Middleton Safer Neighbourhood Team will be running a number of police drop-in surgeries throughout February and March to listen to the views of the community on local policing.

On Friday, February 7, Monday, February 17 and Monday, March 10, officers will be visiting Wirksworth market place from 6pm and Middleton community room from 7pm.

Police will be on hand to chat to residents about any local issues and offer steps that they can take to further protect themselves against criminals.

This includes ensuring that windows and doors are properly secure, no valuables are left on display in vehicles and how purchasing home security kits, such as ‘dusk til’ dawn’ bulbs and drive-way alarms, can really help to deter criminals.

For more information or if there is something you would like to raise but cannot attend the surgery call 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.

Alternatively, email the team at matlock.neighbourhoods@derbyshire.pnn.police.uk
