Officers in Buxton are giving van owners the chance to pick up security advice, mark their tools and talk about new investments in policing at an event tomorrow.
The Buxton Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team is holding an event at World of Power on Tuesday, May 14 as part of the Safer Together campaign.
Van owners will be able to get their tools security marked and the team will be offering advice around vehicle security.
People will also be offered another chance to sign up to sign up to Derbyshire Alert to receive targeted information about crime, scams and crime prevention initiatives in their area.
The event is the second to take place in Buxton as part the Safer Together initiative, which aims to reach out and engage with residents and show how we are working as a partnership with other agencies, and investing into making Derbyshire safer.
Officers will be at the site on Dew Pond Lane between 9.30am and 4pm, no appointment is necessary just drive up and the team will be happy to talk to you.
Safer Together has been launched to help demonstrate how the extra £24 each household is paying into policing, through their council tax, will see the recruitment of 120 additional officers and staff, increase police visibility, improve road safety, provide greater support to vulnerable people, including those in mental health crisis, and enhance investigative policing.
The investment came after consultation with the public revealed they were willing to pay extra in council tax to fund an increase in police resources in neighbourhoods and the Safer Together campaign aims to reach out and engage with residents and show how we are working as a partnership with other agencies, and investing into making Derbyshire safer.
A variety of events are being held by our Safer Neighbourhoods throughout the summer as part of the campaign.
