Police in Derby, South Derbyshire and Erewash hold host of events to show we are 'Safer Together'
Main article content
Our officers across Derby, South Derbyshire and Erewash are holding a series of events over the next month and are inviting residents to join them.
The events are 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 in some cases have their cycles security marked for free. (events marked with a *)
‘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.
