Your current priorities for this neighbourhood

Priority

Targeting crime in Chapel and Chinley

Issue Date:
Issue was set on 06/02/2017
Actions to be taken are as follows:
  • Following a recent meeting with residents, we will continue to carry out targeted patrols in Chapel and Chinley to deter criminals and catch offenders in the act.
  • We will be monitoring crime reports in the area and will be acting accordingly. This will include carrying out increased and targeted patrols, offering security advice on a particular issue, and hosting events to help residents to boost security.
  • We will also be speaking to residents to help them to increase security of their home, vehicles and outbuildings to help them to better protect themselves from becoming a victim of crime.
  • We would encourage residents to remain vigilant and to call police should they see anything suspicious in their neighbourhood. This could help to stop a crime from taking place.

Anti-social behaviour at Chapel Memorial Park

Issue Date:
Issue was set on 01/11/2016
Actions to be taken are as follows:
  • The Chapel and Chinley Safer Neighbourhood Team carried out high-visibility patrols around the Memorial Park in Chapel to identify groups taking part in anti-social behaviour (ASB) and engage with them about the effects of their behaviour on people living nearby.
  • PC Graham Mason and PCSO Karen Green interacted with youngsters to deter them from ASB and to encourage them to take part in diversionary activities to prevent further nuisance behaviour.
  • Anyone who was caught taking part in nuisance behaviour were advised about how their actions affect others and how it could lead to further involvement from police and partners.
  • The policing team also worked closely with other local agencies to tackle the issues, including litter being left behind in and around the Memorial Park.

Safer Neighbourhood Team Sergeants

I am Sergeant 3320 Denis Murphy and I have responsibility for this Safer Neighbourhood team.

I have been a police officer for a total of 26 years, covering a wide range of roles in three parts of the country - the Metropolitan Police, South Yorkshire and Derbyshire. In that time, I have been a patrol bobby, part of Safer Neighbourhood teams and a support Sergeant based at Matlock.

After moving to Derbyshire Constabulary in 2007, I have served in Chesterfield, Matlock, Ashbourne and now Buxton Central Section, covering Buxton, Chapel, Whaley Bridge, Hope Valley and surrounding villages.

I'm thrilled to be given the chance to lead the B Central Safer Neighbourhood teams and am looking forward to tackling the issues that matter most to local people.

I am particularly interested in fostering working partnerships with community and faith groups in the area, to improve how we work together to make our communities safer places to live, work and visit.
