Residents in Brimington will be able to chat online and raise community concerns with their local police officers during the first virtual surgery for the area.

Residents can log on to the Derbyshire Constabulary website between 7pm and 8pm on Tuesday, August 16 and chat to officers from their local Safer Neighbourhood team.

Virtual surgeries allow members of the public to ask questions about local policing, raise community concerns and find out more about crime prevention from the comfort of their own home.

Virtual surgeries have been held for residents in Chesterfield and Dronfield earlier this year with questions ranging from speeding to anti-social behaviour.

Police Community Support Officer Leanne Bradbury said: “We hold a number of meetings in the community and virtual surgeries are simply another way for people to talk to their local officers.

“This is an opportunity for those who can’t make it to meetings to let the police know about any issues or concerns they have.”

To join the virtual surgery, log-on to www.derbyshire.police.uk just before 7pm and click on the link on the homepage.

Members of the public can also contact their local Safer Neighbourhood policing team by calling 0345 123 3333.
