Dronfield Police Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) praised students at Northfield Junior School on Falcon Road for their “fantastic” drawings and posters which highlighted how anti-social behaviour affects the wider community.

It comes as Derbyshire police have taken part in Anti-Social Behviour Awareness Week, with additional patrols across areas of the county to tackle concerns raised by residents.

Officers in Dronfield earlier this week, identified new graffiti that had been found in Snapehill along with electric scooters that they feared were being used anti-socially in the area which they say will be investigated.
