After a series of bicycle thefts around Chapel, Derbyshire Police held a very constructive meeting with parish councillors and members of the public.
The advice was very clear from the Police:
1. mark your bicycle and take a photo
2. secure your property
3. consider investing in a tracking device
4. report suspicious activity, and
5. register with the Derbyshire Alert website: https://www.derbyshirealert.co.uk/
Over the coming months, parish councillors will be looking at how they can encourage local crime-prevention schemes.
