The Erewash Community Safety Team works very closely with partners to help reduce crime, and attack criminality. In Derbyshire, the lead agency for reducing crime is Derbyshire Police. If you have been a victim of crime and need to report it, please contact the police on:
Call 999 : if a crime is in progress, about to be committed, or you need immediate assistance as someone is in danger
Call 101 : if a crime has been committed, but you don’t need immediate assistance
Contact them online : you can now report non-emergencies online at www.report.police.uk.
The Community Safety team runs a scheme called Safer Homes. Safer Homes is working to improve security in the homes of elderly and vulnerable people. The scheme works by giving advice on crime prevention and home security. In some cases we are able to install additional door and window locks and other appropriate equipment free of charge.For more information, or to make a referral call South Derbyshire CVS on 01283 219761 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
