Police Report for March

Police Report for March

Darley Safer Neighbourhood Team
Beat report
for March 2013

We're happy to report that shed break ins seem to have lessened in this last month. Unfortunately, we have had a spate of vehicle break ins, mainly in the Darley Abbey area. There was no sign of forced entry; therefore we're assuming the vehicles were left unlocked. We realise it can be easy to leave vehicles unlocked especially when unloading shopping etc, its easy to become distracted. See the paragraph on Crime prevention for further information. Someone has been arrested and is on bail pending further enquiries, however please still be mindful.

Crime prevention
Thinking about the recent spate of vehicle break-ins, unfortunately we have to repeat advice regarding not leaving any items of value in your vehicle. On one recent incident, the offender made an untidy search of the boot and the glove box. You may assume both places are safe to lock valuables in, however this is not the case.

Please consider postcode marking any items such as Sat Navs, I-Pods, Laptops etc. You can also register such items on the internet -, this way if items are stolen they can be recovered more easily. Make a note of the serial number of your electrical items and the IMEI number of your mobile.


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

The youth club runs term time only so we're on Easter Break at the moment. We celebrated our first birthday the other week with a chip supper for the children. Its nice to see the light nights, we can start planning to do outdoor activities on the park! We continue to welcome any suggestions for things to do.

 Neighbourhood Watch

Some of our team recently attended a local meeting where Neighbourhood Watch was mentioned. We are hoping to resurrect the scheme in the Strutts Park area which has been stagnant since the death of the previous co-ordinator. If anyone is interested in becoming a co-ordinator or being part of a scheme, please contact one of team.


The surgery dates for the coming months are:

Monday 13th May – Rivermead House – 10am
Monday 20th May – Darley Abbey Legion – 7pm

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.


   Our priorities for Darley are:

Anti  social  Behaviour – West  End 
Parking Access only
Youth  Provision  and engagement

The team continue to work closely with partner agencies and local businesses to tackle our priorities.
