Police to target a number of 'community concerns' in Hasland

Police say they'll be working with residents in Hasland next week to target a number of community concerns

The force is inviting residents along to Eastwood Park  this weekend for an emergency services event which will help them launch a week long 'beat sweep.'

Residents and visitors will get the chance to meet members of their local Safer Neighbourhood policing team, our roads policing unit, dog section, drones unit and Derbyshire Fire and Rescue service.

East Midlands Ambulance Service volunteer Community First Responders will be on hand to share the work they do to support ambulance crews, along with council officers and Neighbourhood Watch.

The public will get chance to chat and have pictures taken, and also sign up to Derbyshire Alert to receive targeted information about crime, scams and crime prevention initiatives in their area.

It will take place between 10am and 2pm this Saturday (July 13) and launches a beat sweep of the area, where officers, partnership agencies and the community work together to issues or concerns around anti-social behaviour and crime in the area.

Temporary Sergeant Kelly Brown, who is currently leading the Safer Neighbourhood policing teams in the Chesterfield area, said: “We’re working together with other emergency services and agencies to hold an event for the community in Hasland, to give residents a chance to get to know us and to launch our beat sweep.

“From Monday, our officers will be taking part in a week of action in the Hasland area, working with partnership agencies to target community concerns relating to anti-social behaviour and crime.  This week is aimed at getting the community involved so they can continue on with keeping their area safe and improving it.

“We look forward to meeting local residents and community members, and finding out more about any issues or concerns they may have.”
