Crime prevention

Our Community Safety Team provide support to the Safer Derbyshire Dales Community Safety Partnership to reduce crime and the fear of crime across Derbyshire Dales.

The Partnership has succeeded in helping to keep the Derbyshire Dales a low crime area, reducing vehicle crime by around 33 per cent, and domestic burglary by 35 per cent.  We have also put in place improvements to make car parking safer, have successfully reduced anti-social behaviour and have undertaken a range of other initiatives to successfully reduce crime in our communities.

The key to our success is effective partnership working. We have put in place innovative joint working with the High Peak Community Safety Partnership.

We will continue to work with our partners and with local people to achieve our ambition of keeping the Derbyshire Dales one of the safest places in England to live, work and visit.

The Derbyshire Police and Crime Panel is responsible for supporting and scrutinising the Police and Crime Commissioner.
