Residents invited to help set policing priorities at drop-in surgeries in Buxton

Posted on 15th January 2014


Officers chat to shoppers about issues affecting their community

Buxton and Fairfield residents were invited to have their say to help set policing priorities for their neighbourhood at drop-in surgeries.

Police took centre stage at Morrisons in Buxton on Wednesday, January 15 to listen to the views of local residents.

Shoppers were invited to fill in short surveys to share their views on how they think their local police are doing and to put forward any suggestions for policing priorities in their community.

Officers from the Buxton and Fairfield Safer Neighbourhood Team were on hand to offer crime prevention advice and chat to residents about any issues or concerns they may have.

PCSO Dave Murphy from the Buxton Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “Events like this are a great opportunity for us to head out and listen to the views of local residents to help us set the policing profile for the next few months.

“We had a really good response from the surgery and we plan to speak to as many people as we can over the next few days.

“This will help us to create an accurate picture of neighbourhood issues ahead of the governance meeting next week.”

The next quarterly Safer Neighbourhood governance meeting will be held on Monday, January 20 at Buckingham Hotel on Burlington Road.

Officers will also be visiting The Dome on Thursday, January 16th between 12 noon and 2pm and Sainsburys store on Friday, January 17 between 3pm and 5pm.

For more information or to speak to the team call 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.
