December Police Report

Darley Safer Neighbourhood Team

Beat report for December 2012

We hope that you've all had a very happy Christmas and New Year. During December, we experienced a rise in vehicle crime including damage to and theft from vehicles.

Extra patrols were carried out by SNT officers who changed their shifts voluntarily. This resulted in the arrest of two offenders who were found with stolen property on their person. Enquiries are still ongoing.

Our team also organised a community event in conjunction with one of our partners – a charity named First Contact who help the elderly stay safe and independent in their homes. Crime prevention and fire safety advice were on offer at the event which was held at Broadway Baptist Church.

Crime prevention
We are still seeing a number of bike thefts in the area. It might be that you or your child has received a new bike for Christmas. Please don't give thieves the opportunity!

If you are storing a bike in a shed or outhouse please still ensure the bike is locked with a suitable lock to a sturdy fixing. Also please make a note of your bike's chassis or frame number; this can help us trace it if it is stolen.

As the nights are drawing in remember to ensure all doors and windows are locked and secure of an evening, keep vehicles locked and valuables out of site. Personal items such as phones, bikes, Sat Navs and computers can be registered at This will enable police to trace owners of lost or stolen property more effectively and help combat the sale of stolen goods. It is also worth making note of any serial numbers, makes and models of your electrical items.

The team will be looking at holding a further bike engraving session in the near future, any cyclists are urged to attend and have bike security engraved which can also aid in having your stolen or lost property returned. Feel free to bring along any garden tools such as spades, wheelbarrows or lawn mowers that can be engraved. Keep checking the force website and local press for further details.


Please remember you can follow the team on Twitter, search for @DarleySNT and keep updated with the teams on going projects, surgery times and crime prevention advice.

Youth Provision and Engagement

Our youth club still continues to run well with around 12-15 children attending a regular basis. We held a small party at Christmas which was well received. We start back after the Christmas break on 9th January.

At the start of 2013, we are beginning to think about reapplying for funding to maintain the club and also ideas for different things to do for the children.

If anyone wishes to volunteer at the club or has any ideas for different things to do, then please feel free to contact one of the team. Ideas for karate sessions, drama and dance have all been suggested however to be honest its sometimes a case of the fact we haven't got funding to throw at every idea – we have to maintain the club after all and its also knowing who to contact.

If anyone does know a group or organisation that would offer anything like dance or drama sessions to young people at a low cost, again please feel free to contact us.
