Residents in Amber Valley and Chesterfield invited to have their say on local issues

Residents in Heanor, Loscoe, Whittington and Barrow Hill are being encouraged to have their say on local policing issues to help officers set new targets to work towards in the coming months.

Thursday, 1st October 2015, 2:10 pm

Members of the area’s Safer Neighbourhood teams are set to host community panel meetings on Tuesday, October 13 to meet local people and listen to community concerns.

They will then use feedback given by the public to set policing priorities to work towards tackling in the next three months.

Residents in Whittington and Barrow Hill can go along to St Patrick’s Church Hall on High Street in New Whittington from 10.30am to 12.30pm.

Current priorities for the area are nuisance off road bikes along the canal between Staveley and Old Whittington and working to deter anti-social behaviour, ASB, in local parks.

Officers from the Heanor and Loscoe beat will be on hand at Roper Avenue Community Centre in Heanor from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

The team is currently working to clamp down on nuisance off-road bikes around Brampton Avenue in Heanor and ASB caused by motorists around Tesco and Shipley Park.

If you are unable to attend the meetings but would like to have your say on local policing issues you can submit priority suggestions via:
