  • Officers carried out increased patrols throughout the day to identify problem areas and speak to any cyclists seen riding on pavements;

Preventing criminality in and around the derelict buildings of Glossop

Issue Date:
Issue was set on 06/08/2015
Actions to be taken are as follows:
  • The team stepped up patrols around derelict buildings to gather intelligence about where anti-social and nuisance behaviour was taking place, and at what times of day. These patrols were aimed at preventing any crime and disorder by having a presence in the community, deterring anti-social behaviour and dealing with it when it does occur to reassure local residents.
  • Officers engaged with those found to be causing anti-social behaviour (ASB), trespassing on or vandalising derelict buildings. They spoke to offenders to advise them about the impact that their behaviour has on others living in the area and on the buildings.

Maintaining and improving communication between the public and local officers

Issue Date:
Issue was set on 06/08/2015
Actions to be taken are as follows:
  • Officers met with members of the local community and spoke with them about any concerns that they had and how police could help to improve the situation.
  • The team visited local businesses to meet staff and also worked towards revitalising the Shopwatch system.
  • Local people were encouraged to contact the Safer Neighbourhood team on 101 if they had any issues or concerns they wanted to discuss. They were also encouraged to follow @GamesleySNT on Twitter to stay up to date with local policing in their community.

Preventing burglaries across the High Peak

Issue Date:
Issue was set on 24/03/2016
Actions to be taken are as follows:
  • Safer Neighbourhood officers carried out both high-visibility and covert patrols in the area to deter criminals and catch any offenders in the act.
  • The policing team carried out regular stop checks to ensure that any potential thieves are stopped before a crime is committed;
  • Officers advised residents about the extra steps that they can take to better protect their property from thieves. This includes storing valuables out of sight, making sure windows and doors are locked, keeping keys out of sight and investing in security kit such as SmartWater, alarms, door chimes and timer switches.
  • Homeowners urged to register valuables with www.immobilise.com – This helps police to trace the owners of recovered stolen goods.
