Operation Errwood has success with crime prevention bus

Posted on 27th May 2011

Officers in Stockbrook are having further success with Operation Errwood having used a crime prevention burglary bus to visit various locations in the neighbourhood this week.

Operation Errwood, a multi agency operation, was launched in April with the aim of targeting specific streets in Stockbrook neighbourhood to tackle anti-social behaviour, dog fouling, graffiti, fly tipping and targeting crime in the local neighbourhood. 

Officers from the Stockbrook Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team have been working closely with our Roads Policing Unit and partner agencies from the Derby City and Neighbourhoods Partnerships to tackle the local problems.

This week the bus visited various areas of Stockbrook neighbourhood and received more than 60 visitors over the course of two days.

The visitors were all given crime prevention advice and reassurance that local officers and partner agencies were in touch with their concerns and trying to resolve them.

PCSO Andy Evans from the Stockbrook Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team said:”This was an excellent turnout from our local community and we deemed it extremely productive.

“Our residents could easily access their local police team and we were able to provide practical advice and reassurance.

“We hope this is what the community wants from its local officers and judging by the positive response we think it has worked, therefore we will look at running more of these events.”

In relation to Operation Errwood the following dates are when Streetpride will be operating in streets listed to improve the appearance of the neighbourhood.

  • Thursday 2nd June  Stockbrook Road  11.00 – 14.00
  • Thursday 23rd June  Stockbrook Street  11.00 – 14.00
