Safer Neighbourhoods is all about you having a dedicated local team making your area safer, cleaner and a more pleasant place to live. Each team varies in size but all have at least one police officer, a police community support officer (PCSO) and a special constable. It may be you are fed up with anti-social and nuisance behaviour, for example. Or perhaps you have concerns about graffiti or vandalism? Whatever the problem, Safer Neighbourhoods gives you the opportunity to set the agenda in your area and help implement lasting solutions.
Each Safer Neighbourhood team works in partnership with local agencies to address your concerns. In Derbyshire, our partners include all eight district councils, Derby City Council, Derbyshire County Council, the fire service, parish councils, the business community and other groups such as Neighbourhood Watch.
