I am Sergeant 135 Paul Simmons and I have responsibility for this Safer Neighbourhood policing team.

I have been a police officer for more than 25 years, and during my career I have worked in Derby and Matlock as well as in specialist roles as an Officer Safety Trainer, a Firearms Officer on the Armed Response Unit and as a Firearms Instructor.

Our priorities in the Derbyshire Dales are to work to keep our communities safe, and to deal robustly with anti-social behaviour, substance misuse and serious and organised crime.

Residents in the Derbyshire Dales should be reassured that we will continue to use our resources in the best way possible to help protect the vulnerable and to work with partnership agencies to target issues which are affecting our communities.

Working to prevent crime surrounding Land Rover vehicles

# Officers spoke with Land Rover owners about the importance of boosting security and protecting their vehicles from thieves.
# The team also carried out Land Rover security marking days and invited local motorists. SmartWater is a forensic based security marking fluid that can be used on property from bikes, electrical items and jewellery to help deter criminals. Marking items with security kits such as SmartWater can improve the chances of police returning any items if they are stolen and recovered.
# The policing team offered crime prevention advice to vehicle owners including to park in well-lit, overlooked areas where possible and to use a steering lock, alarm, wheel clamp or tracking device for added security.

Working closely with schools in the community

# Officers will be working closely with local schools to help build relationships.

# The team will be speaking with the children to introduce themselves as their local policing team, along with raising awareness of Safer Neighbourhood teams and how they work to keep the community safe.

# The Safer Neighbourhood team will be visiting schools on a regular basis to deliver talks on a range of topics to help boost the children’s safety knowledge. This includes stranger danger, road safety, drug and alcohol awareness and issues around child sexual exploitation, including sexting.

# The visits will also include recent work around intergenerational projects, such as teaming bowls with safety talks to help break down any age barriers and provide a fun and educational talk for pupils.

Boosting vehicle security across the Derbyshire Dales

# The Hathersage Safer Neighbourhood Team will be heading out on high visibility patrols to deter thieves and catch offenders in the act, paying particular attention to car parks across the beat.

# Police will be identifying vehicles that are insecure or with valuables on display during patrols and will be speaking with the owners to offer relevant crime prevention advice.

# Officers will be handing out crime prevention leaflets in targeted areas to encourage residents to increase their car security in a bid to discourage criminals.

# The policing team will also be encouraging owners of quad bikes to take extra security measures, such as using a heavy duty lock and ground anchor to further secure the bike, following thefts.

Improving security of land, outbuildings and vehicles at local farms

# Farm Watch is a free service which is led by police and partners including Derbyshire Dales and High Peak local authorities, Derbyshire County Council and the NFU.

# Safer Neighbourhood officers will be heading out on the beat to raise awareness of the scheme to help protect rural communities against crime. They will be issuing Farm Watch packs to people signing up to initiative.

# The policing team will also be speaking to farmers about increasing the security of their land, outbuildings, vehicles and equipment. This includes storing vehicles away in a secured building, if possible secured to the ground or wall, investing in a heavy duty lock and chain, and restricting access to farm land and property with locked gates.

Tackling off-road vehicles

# Officers will be teaming up with partner agencies to tackle illegal off-roading across the Derbyshire Dales with Operation Blackbrook.

Raising awareness of the Church Watch scheme

# Safer Neighbourhood officers will be heading out on the beat to sign up churches to the scheme to help to protect them against thieves and vandals, this follows previous thefts of large quantities of lead being stripped from roofs, and items of silver being stolen from the vestry.

# The policing teams will be visiting churches to offer advice around the steps that can be taken to increase security, including installing wildlife cameras around the churchyard to capture potential thieves in the act, along with boosting security of artefacts inside the vestry.
