Officers from our Oakwood Safer Neighbourhood team are asking for vigilance and information from residents after a series of damage in Chaddesden Woods.
Since the beginning of the year there have been five cases of reported damage to fences and the latest incident has seen a police awareness sign damaged at the Cherrybrook Drive entrance.
PCSO Daniel Waites, from the team, said: “The area is popular for residents, particularly for dog walkers. Oakwood is a safe and pleasant place to live and we are determined to keep it that way.
“I would urge anyone who has seen anyone causing this damage or knows something about it, to make contact with the team. In the meantime we will be increasing our patrols, both unformed and plain-clothed.”
The latest damage was caused between 9am on Tuesday May, 14 and 1pm on Thursday, May 16.
