If you live in Allenton the local policing Safer Neighbourhood team are inviting you to come and meet the team at an event today, Tuesday, June 25.
Officers will be at the Co-op store on Osmaston Road between 10am and 1pm.
They are inviting residents to come along and have a chat about any policing concerns in their area, receive crime prevention advice 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.
