Officers will be heading out on the beat to crack down on burglaries in Chapel and Chinley after setting the issue as the latest policing priority.

As part of the crackdown, the Chapel and Chinley Safer Neighbourhood Team will be patrolling the streets with crime prevention flyers targeting unoccupied houses with windows that have been left open.

The flyer, shaped like a footprint, bears the message: ‘You have left your home insecure’.

They are intended to catch the attention of the people who return home to find the flyer in their house and realise they have left themselves open to burglary.

The next neighbourhood policing meeting will take place at Rems bar on Market Street, Chapel-en-le-Frith on Tuesday October 21 from 7pm.

To speak to the team call 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.
