Live in Chellaston and wondering what to do with the kids tomorrow? How about bringing them to the library to meet the local policing team.
The Chellaston Safer Neighbourhood Team will be at the library on Barley Croft in the village on Friday, 26th July between 10.30am and 1pm.
There will be activities and even the chance for the children to dress up as a police officer in a real uniform.
The team will also be available to talk to the parents about policing in the area and will providing an opportunity to sign up to Derbyshire Alert a system that keeps residents up to date with crime and policing issues in their community.
The event is part of our ‘Safer Together’ campaign marking new investment in the force that will see 120 new posts created working to improve police presence in neighbourhoods and bolster investigations.
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.
Recruitment to the new roles is under way with posts all due to be in place by the end of July.
Investment will also be put towards improving road safety and providing greater support to vulnerable people, including those in mental health crisis.
