Officers from our Erewash Safer Neighbourhood Team are going on the road with the mobile police station.
The team is taking the station to locations across the borough over two days next week to hold ‘street-meets’ with residents.
On Sunday, November 12 and Monday, November 13 they will be in Little Eaton, Breadsall, Kirk Hallam and West Hallam.
Sergeant Damien Shannon, who is in charge of neighbourhood policing for Erewash, said: "The team tries to have as visible a presence as possible in these villages, this type of event sets a time and place where they are available for anyone to come and have a chat about any concerns they may have.
“The mobile police station has facilities to have a confidential talk or residents can just come along and have a more informal chat about things that may be concerning them about crime and disorder in their area.
“This gets our officers out and about right in the heart of communities and they are helped with this as they are now issued with mobile office devices where they can record concerns or crimes without having to return to the actual police station.”
On Sunday, November 12 the team will be outside Barry Fitch butchers, The Town, Little Eaton between 1pm and 2.45pm, then on Brookside Road, Breadsall between 3pm and 4.45pm
On Monday, November 13 the team will be in the carpark outside the shops on Queen Elizabeth Way, Kirk Hallam between 9.30am and 11.30am, then in the car park at the Dales shopping centre, West Hallam between 12.30pm and 2.30pm.
