A booklet which gives advice on a range of issues such as theft, fire and personal safety has been launched in a bid to target countryside crime and emergencies in Derbyshire.
The Derbyshire Rural Safety and Crime Prevention Guide has come about through a collaboration between Derbyshire Constabulary, Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service and East Midlands Ambulance Service.
The booklet covers issues which have been highlighted as a priority for the rural communities of Derbyshire and gives advice on how to prevent them, to help people stay safe and to reduce crime and accidents.
From a crime prevention perspective, topics include farm machinery, plant and vehicle theft, livestock worrying and theft, fuel theft, equine crime, fly-tipping and poaching.
There is also a wealth of important safety information, including the safe storage of flammable materials, fire and electrical safety, winter driving advice and help in medical emergencies.
PCC Hardyal Dhindsa said: “People living in rural communities face different challenges but our emergency services are committed to supporting everyone and doing everything they can to keep them safe. It was clear when I visited every village in the county that people wanted easy access to information and this booklet provides a wealth of tips, useful numbers and advice.
“I’m proud that in recent years we have boosted the rural policing presence to make more remote communities safer, we are proactively tackling road safety issues and I very much hope that this booklet will add to their feelings of safety.”
