Bolster your home security at cop day

Police in Heanor are encouraging residents to be safe and secure at a crime prevention event set to take place next week.

Officers from the Heanor and Loscoe Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team have joined forces with Derbyshire and Rescue Service to hold the stand at Tesco in Heanor on Monday, October 22, between 1pm and 3pm.

Residents will be able to pick up items such as purse chains and window alarms, and will be able to get advice from both the police and fire officers about staying safe and secure.

It is also a chance for people to chat to police about any concerns or issues they might have.
