Derby County and Coventry City supporters are being urged to do their clubs proud during this Saturday’s fixture at Pride Park Stadium.
With a significant crowd expected officers from Derbyshire police are preparing to welcome thousands of fans to the city on 19 March.
Derbyshire officers will be supported in ensuring everyone has a safe and enjoyable day out, by colleagues from British Transport Police, West Midlands Police, and West Yorkshire Mounted Police.
PC Rog Brown QPM, Dedicated Football Officer for Derby County, said:
“We are looking forward to welcoming fans from both sides, who are looking for a good day out.
“One of the best parts of this job is engaging with fans as they come together to support their teams.
“Sadly, this season we have seen an increase in football-related disorder from some people who are intent on disrupting the match day experience of others, and the reputation of the teams they follow.
“We will be working closely with our policing colleagues and Derby County Football Club throughout the day to promptly tackle any such issues and ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
“The mounted police always go down well with supporters, and we encourage fans to chat to officers throughout the day.
“Our approach to all football fixtures is to engage in a positive way with all fans and help them to get the best possible experience out of the game.
“Our policing operation will, first and foremost, be engaging and welcoming
“So whichever team you support, be loud, be proud and be a credit to your club.”
Regular updates will be posted from the @DCFCPolice Twitter account throughout the day as well as from the main @DerbysPolice account.
