Compared to other areas of the country Derbyshire has low levels of crime, but surveys have shown community safety to be a top priority for people living in the county.
Safer Derbyshire is a multi-agency partnership based at County Hall, Matlock. Our aim is to reduce crime, disorder and the fear of crime in Derbyshire by providing support, advice and leadership to our partners and communities.
The agencies involved include Derbyshire County Council departments and the Community Safety Unit, Research and Information Team, Derbyshire Drug and Alcohol Action Team, Derbyshire Youth Offending Service, Derbyshire Constabulary, Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service, Derbyshire Probation Trust and the Local Criminal Justice Board. At a local level we work with Community Safety Partnerships which are multi-agency partnership's based in district/borough areas.
We are committed to working together to reduce crime and maintain quality of life for people who live, work and visit Derbyshire.
Teenagers can become victims and perpetrators of abusive relationships and we want them to re-think their views of violence, abuse or controlling behaviour in relationships.
As part of our work to make Derbyshire safer we offer many services to help people deal with problems that can make their lives difficult.
We've changed access to our secure pages. Please email Community Safety for your new access details.
A special 'Lock up' event has been set up in Belper to help residents and visitors stay safe and secure on the run up to Christmas.
