Tideswell Safer Neighbourhood Policing Teams


Tideswell & Area – Winter 2009

Your safer neighbourhood team is committed to making your community a safer and better place to live and work.

Tideswell & Area (including Hassop, Gt. Longstone, Ashford, Baslow, Beeley, Cressbrook, Edensor, Little Longstone, Monsal Head, Pilsley, Litton, Wardlow and Wheston)

Over 400 residents in Baslow were given Selecta DNA property marking kits as part of Derbyshire Constabulary’s countywide campaign: Operation Relentless. This was organised by the Derbyshire Dales Community Safety Partnership and involved many different partners. We hope this will help keep the area safe by deterring potential thieves.
