Police offer a chance to bring the community together and build a safe-place to talk about issues and problems in the area.
Police in Duffield, Quarndon, Mackworth, Holloway, Heage and Nether Heage are holding a day of drop-in surgeries for residents to catch up with officers.
Officers from the Duffield, Belper Rural and Holloway Safer Neighbourhood Policing Teams are holding surgeries in the areas they cover.
The aim of these surgeries, are to encourage people to speak up about any concerns they might have about crime in the area. It is also an opportunity to put their mind at rest as officers can attempt to prevent the sorts of offences discussed.
The surgeries will take place on Saturday, October the 13th in the mobile police station which will be parked up at:
- Duffield (Oak Close): 9am – 9.30am
- Quarndon (Church Road): 9.45am – 10.15am
- Mackworth (Lower Road): 10.30am – 11am
- Holloway (Church Street): 12.30pm – 1pm
- Heage (Park Road): 1.30pm – 2pm
- Nether Heage (Spanker public house): 2.15pm – 2.45pm

We feel this is a great initiative. It not only begins to build a communication bridge between police and people, but also builds trust at the same time.
