Police in Ilkeston offer residents the chance for 'Cuppa with a Copper'
Main article content
Our officers from the Ilkeston Safer Neighbourhood team are offering residents the chance to join them for a ‘Cuppa with a Copper’ next week.
The team will be there to speak to residents about any concerns they may have about policing issues in the town and have the opportunity to sign up for Derbyshire Alert to be kept updated of crime in their neighbourhood.
They will also be able to discuss the ‘Safer Together’ campaign which marks 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.
