Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa will join Killamarsh villagers in North East Derbyshire on Tuesday (15 March) in support of their plans to extend their Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) scheme.
Mr Dhindsa said today: ”This has the makings of being a great team effort within the village, with people looking out for each other. Neighbourhood Watch groups are growing within our communities and play a valuable role in helping the police to keep people safe from crime.”
The meeting will be at the village’s Leisure Centre at 7pm.
Resident Avril Froggatt said the meeting is about encouraging more people to get involved with NHW in Killamarsh following a spate of burglaries.
“After the break-ins we decided it would be good if we had someone as a volunteer on most roads, or act as a point of contact for the Safer Neighbourhood Policing Teams. We are going to try and work as a team, and attract more volunteers," she said. “Ten people have already come forward.”
Also invited to join the meeting are Chesterfield NHW coordinator Joye Dobbs and members of the Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team.
