Police in South Derbyshire offer residents opportunity to help them set policing priorities

Swad SNT Team2 Swadlincote SNT with Chris Smith from South Derbyshire District Council

Our officers from the Safer Neighbourhood teams in South Derbyshire are offering residents and businesses the opportunity to help them set the policing priorities for the district. 

The move comes in a series of events being held throughout October in conjunction with the Safer South Derbyshire Partnership. 

The teams are holding meetings across the district aimed at ensuring that the public’s concerns relating to crime and disorder are recognised and acted upon. 

Sergeant Graham Summers, who is in charge of the teams, said: “We work closely with South Derbyshire District Council as part of the Safer South Derbyshire Partnership and it is vital that we listen to residents and businesses in the district to understand what worries them about crime and disorder. 

“My teams are out and about in the community on a daily basis but the meetings are an opportunity for people to meet the wider partnership and talk about what is concerning them. 

“We are then able to take these issues in to consideration when setting our policing priorities for the oncoming quarter.” 

The meetings start at 6.15pm with tea and coffee being served at 7.15pm, which gives an opportunity for a more informal chat with the officers from the teams.
