Police report for August
Darley Safer Neighbourhood Team
Beat report for August 2013
We are still suffering bike thefts however they aren't in any particular area – they're quite spread out. Please ensure you have a good quality lock for your bike, they are available for around £10-£15 from most large supermarkets and places like Halfords. We hope to set up some bike engraving sessions soon.
Unfortunately, during the last few weeks we've suffered a high volume of break ins involving outbuildings – sheds, garages etc. Please check access and egress points of your property, are there any weak spots? Is the property stored in your shed visible from the window? If so, consider moving it and investing in a shed alarm. Again, this isn't targeted in any particular area.
If you see anything suspicious, please call police immediately. You are never wasting time making these calls – we want these people caught.
Youth Provision and Engagement
A few weeks ago, we received the sad news that St Anne's Church is closing. Not only is this sad news for the community, it leaves us without a venue for the youth club. As you can imagine, this was a worrying time for our team and for everyone who helped set up the project.
I'm very happy to report that a new venue has been found which is St Alkmund's Church Hall on Kedleston Road. PCSO Linda Ball is liasing with youth workers and the team at St Alkmunds and we aim to re-launch the club at the beginning of November.
A coffee morning took place at St Mary's Church Hall, Darley Lane on Saturday 7th September. This was to hopefully re-ignite interest in forming NHW schemes in the Strutts Park area.
The event was fairly well-attended and there will hopefully be 3-4 potential new schemes starting up in the area. The team extends their thanks to all at Strutts Park Residents Association who helped with publicity and very kindly provided refreshments.
Surgery dates have now been booked until the end of the year. The surgery dates & venues are:
Rivermead House, Bath Street 10-11am
Tuesday 17th September
Tuesday 10th December
Derby Homes Office, Parker Street 10-11am
Tuesday 15th October
Tuesday 3rd December
Darley Abbey Legion, Darley Street (across from Abbey Pub) 6.30-7.30pm
Tuesday 1st October

Remember, surgeries are an opportunity for members of the public to come along and report any issues of concern or simply meet members of your local Safer Neighbourhood Team.
