Your Safer Neighbourhood team (SNT) is a group of local police officers, Police Community Support Officers and Specials dedicated to serving your community.
We are proud to work closely with local authorities, community leaders and residents to decide our policing priorities for the area. This helps us to find useful, long-term solutions to local problems, while maintaining our wider focus on preventing and reducing crime, protecting the vulnerable and providing reassurance across Derbyshire.

• There have been a number of drugs warrants executed and arrests made in relation to the supply of controlled drugs following on from a positive warrant the team were successful in obtaining a closure order at a property which had been causing ASB and a serious nuisance to local residents. Those involved in the drugs trade will continue to be targeted by SNT officers, supported by specialist Police units. We work with partners to protect those at risk of being criminally exploited. • We have close working relationships with the local authorities, local housing associations and other partner agencies, this allows us to identify those at risk and work together with our partners to ensure all aspects are being considered. • We visit our most vulnerable victims regularly, sometimes daily, offering reassurance and support. We have also taken robust action against the offenders, making arrests at the first opportunity and enforcing strict bail conditions, offering an extra layer of support to the victims. • Through listening to the public and through regular patrols of our patch we have identified areas which seem to attract beggars. Regular patrols and consistency when dealing with the individuals involved have worked well as a deterrent. We either move them on or deal with them by arresting and charging them or reporting them to the courts. • Through community intelligence and regular patrols, we have identified regular offenders. We take positive action where we can and disrupt their behaviours using bail conditions and unannounced visits. • Keeping our communities regularly updated with our patrols, actions and results using our social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Derbyshire Alert. • We also attend community forums and hold multi-agency events.
