Police are appealing for information after a number of residents have raised the issue of graffiti around the village of Hayfield.
Officers from the New Mills and Hayfield Safer Neighbourhood Team will be increasing patrols in the area in a bid to deter criminals.
The team will also be heading out to local school and youth groups to chat to the youngsters about the impact that anti-social behaviour and graffiti can have on the local community.
Lee Baker from New Mills and Hayfield Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “Some people may feel that this is a victimless incident but it is affecting the quality of life of several residents and is unsightly to visitors of the area.
“We will be increasing patrols and any person that is caught with items that can be used to deface building or caught in the act will be dealt with accordingly.”
Anyone with any information about the incident should call PCSO Lee Baker on 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.
