We are celebrating our officers as part of a national campaign – and letting know how you can keep in touch with your local neighbourhood team.
This week has been Neighbourhood Policing Week, a campaign from the National Police Chief’s Council to raise awareness of the brilliant work done by neighbourhood officers up and down the country.
Here in Derbyshire, our local officers have been out and about, talking to people in their areas about our county-wide community messaging system, Derbyshire Alert and completing our Derbyshire Talking surveys.
Derbyshire Alert is a free two-way service that allows Derbyshire Constabulary to send out messages on local crimes, good news, community events and crime prevention.
Once you sign up, you will receive, and can reply to, messages from your local Safer Neighbourhood policing teams, enabling us to work together to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour in your area.
You can choose the type of Alerts you would like to receive, by setting up your own profile. You may wish to know about burglaries and thefts, witness appeals or crime prevention advice relating to the area where you live, or simply be kept up-to-date about local issues relevant to you.
To read more, visit: www.derbyshirealert.co.uk where you can sign up and create your profile today. You can also ask your local officer to sign you up if you do not have easy access to the internet.
You can also complete our Derbyshire Talking survey, which asks about your community and any issues you may want to raise with us.
