Boosting home and garden security to prevent thefts

Actions to be taken are as follows:
  • The Whaley Bridge Safer Neighbourhood Team will be focusing on the prevention of theft by carrying out high visibility patrols and speaking to homeowners about the steps they can take to protect themselves from becoming a victim of crime.
  • The team will be hosting crime prevention days in the community to offer advice to local people.
  • Leaflet drops will also be carried out across the neighbourhood to offer security and crime prevention advice.

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.

Crime Information


Crime mapping allows us to show you where crime is happening at a local level, so we can better engage with our communities and help them determine how best to police the area they live in.
