Police Report for May 2012

Darley Safer Neighbourhood Team

Beat report for May 2013

Reported crime seems to be slowing down. We are still getting sporadic reports of shed breaks – two victims have had high value sports equipment stolen.

If you do keep such items in your shed, then please consider postcode marking them or investing in a Smart Water kit.

On the good news front, if you remember earlier this year we were suffering a high volume of pedal cycle theft – we're pleased to tell you that one offender has been charge with the theft of 3 bikes. On a separate incident, another offender has been charged with handling stolen goods.

We also welcome PC Tim Draycott to the team; PC Draycott joins us having moved from the City centre team.

Crime prevention
It's lovely to see some nice weather at last, we were all beginning to believe that we wouldn't see any sun! However, please be extra vigilant about leaving windows open both at home and in your vehicle. Open windows can be an invitation to thieves.


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 continues to run successfully, we now run sports activities outside for the children as well as the normal church hall session. The youth worker Chris Morris can be found running around Markeaton Rec around 8pm on a Wednesday night! CPR may well be needed!

We're hoping to get the army or fire service cadets in to carry out talks with the children in order to give them positive role models. Last week, a former offender attended the youth club and gave a successful talk to the children about the dangers of alcohol and drugs.

Neighbourhood Watch

PCSO Linda Ball is working with the Strutts Park Residents Association to resurrect their NHW scheme. An initial meeting is being held at St Mary's Church Hall on Tuesday 18th June at 18.30. If you live in the area, please look out for a leaflet coming through your door soon.

If you are interested in the scheme or require any further information, then please feel free to contact Linda on the details below.


The surgery dates for the coming months are:

Monday 10th June – Darley Abbey Legion - 19.00hrs
Monday 24th June – Rivermead House, Bath Street – 10.00am

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.
