Do you know what your local Safer Neighbourhood Teams do?
This week we're spotlighting the work that our neighbourhood policing teams or SNT as we call them, do as part of their work.
As Clowne SNT explain, their role is based around the original "bobbies on the beat". They work directly with the community and local partner organisations to tackle the issues that affect local people, businesses and visitors. By having local knowledge and contacts, they can analyse patterns of crime and understand what the area needs from their local policing teams.
Unlike our response officers who respond to the immediate 999 calls, our Safer Neighbourhood Teams have the time to really understand and target criminal behaviour in their area.
