Police in Swadlincote join forces with partners to show we are 'Safer Together'
Main article content
Our Safer Neighbourhood team at Swadlincote is joining forces with partners to hold an event in the town centre.
The event is being held on The Delph on Thursday, June 27, where the team will be joined by Derbyshire Fire and Rescue, the Rural Crime Team, CVS Safer Home Scheme and South Derbyshire District Council’s enforcement officer.
The event is part of the new ‘Safer Together’ campaign and will give residents the opportunity to meet their local officers, discuss policing issues in their neighbourhood, receive crime prevention advice and have their cycles security marked for free.
‘Safer Together’ 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.
