Have a say on policing

BELPER residents who have concerns about policing where they live can have their say in a series of online discussions.

Derbyshire police want people to tell them how the force can improve the services it offers.

Therefore, members of Derbyshire police’s equality unit will host thre online discussions this month to give as many people as possible the chance to have their opinion heard.

Theresa Reid, head of the unit, said: “If people have found it difficult to approach us in the past, or have an idea about how we could improve, we hope that they will come forward and tell us.”

To take part, log on to the virtual surgery section of the force website at www.derbyshire.police.uk/virtualsurgeries tomorrow, February 9, between 2pm and 5pm, on Thursday, February 16 between 6pm and 9pm, and on Tuesday, February 21 between 2pm and 5pm.
