Now that Christmas is over we would like to remind you of a few precautions to take to help reduce the chances of becoming a victim of crime.
Christmas can be an expensive time for families who work hard to provide gifts for their loved ones and it would be absolutely devastating to have those items stolen by an opportunist thief.
Residents are advised to follow a number of crime prevention tips:
Tips such as keeping valuable items such as jewellery, mobile phones and computer consoles in a secure location are worth following the whole year round. By taking a few minutes to give your home a security boost, you can really reduce the risk of being targeted by burglars.
To report any suspicious activity call Derbyshire police on 101, the non-emergency number, or if you have any information about crime call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
More information on home security can be found on the Derbyshire police website:www.derbyshire.police.uk.
