Residents in the Shirland area are being invited to a special interactive information and fun day with the police and Neighbourhood Watch.

The event, which is being hosted by Stonebroom and Morton Neighbourhood Watch, will take place on Wednesday, June 13 at Shirland Village Hall.

Officers from the South Eastern Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team, which covers the Stonebroom, Shirland, Morton and Stretton area, will be on hand to speak to residents about local issues.

They will be putting on a presentation alongside officers from specialist crime prevention teams.

Other local agencies including the local community safety partnership and councils will also be putting on information sessions about their work.

PCSO Gary Green of the South Eastern Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “The event will include a number of presentations, scenarios and quizzes to give local residents the chance to interact with ourselves and also other agencies.

“It also aims to help reinvigorate existing Neighbourhood Watch schemes in the area and provide newly established watches with the tools and information they need to flourish.

“Our local residents and Neighbourhood Watch members are the eyes and ears of the community and we hope that by forging closer links and raising awareness of crime that we will improve communications which could in turn help reduce crime and the fear of crime.”

Complimentary lunch and refreshments are being provided by local football club Retired Rovers FM and Derbyshire police.
