The work of the Safer Derbyshire Dales Partnership is monitored by a strategic group which then reports to the Safer Communities Board. Funding is provided by the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), for projects to tackle local issues. Updates on these projects are provided at regular intervals throughout the year.

All projects also need to meet the PCC six priorities which are:

  • Strong Local Policing
  • Neighbourhood Crime and Anti-social Behaviour
  • Road Safety
  • Victim Support and Safeguarding
  • Rural Crime
  • Driving Efficiencies 

The Partnership has succeeded in helping to keep the Derbyshire Dales a low crime area.  The Derbyshire Dales still remains one of the safest places in the country. The Community Safety team, have been working hard with a many partners including the police to keep the Derbyshire Dales a safe place to live, work and visit.
