Police and partner organisations have joined forces to organise a successful multi-agency event in Shirebrook.
Bolsover Community Safety Partnership hosted the employee engagement event at Sports Direct in Shirebrook on Tuesday, January 27.
Police and a number of local agencies teamed up to offer advice and provide information to employees about their services.
Officers from Bolsover Community Safety Partnership, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Police, Bolsover District Council, Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service, Hardwick Clinical Commissioning Group, Derbyshire Alcohol Advice Service and other agencies took part in the daylong event.
Information stalls were set up in the canteen for employees to look around during their breaks. They were also invited to speak to officers about issues or concerns in their local area.
The date coincided with National Holocaust Memorial Day, which was marked with a separate display of posters for people to look at and booklets to take away.
Bolsover Community Safety Partnership Sergeant Paul Smith said: “We were really pleased to be given the opportunity to hold the drop in event at Sports Direct, as it gives us a chance to offer advice and speak to people in an informal setting.”
Chair of Bolsover Community Safety Partnership Inspector Russell Dakin said: “We received a very positive response and a lot of interest from employees, many of who live in the Bolsover District or north Nottinghamshire area and we hope to be able to run similar events in the future.”
