Setting Up A Neighbourhood Watch Scheme In Derbyshire
We are creating a strong network of existing and new members within several neighbourhood watch schemes in active communities, from a single neighbourhood watch scheme covering a street to whole villages under one neighbourhood watch. Now is the right time to be involved, make a difference in your area, and create a good quality of life for you and your local community. We connect you with your local Derbyshire Police Force, Derbyshire Crime Commissioner, Community Safety teams, Derbyshire County Council, Derbyshire Fire Service. To ensure safer communities working towards crime prevention and reducing anti-social behaviour along with local information on specific messages in your area.
