Horse and pony owners in the High Peak and Derbyshire Dales are being encouraged to join a special watch group.
Derbyshire Horse Watch is looking to sign up new members and coordinators across the area.
The initiative, which is similar to Neighbourhood Watch, aims to raise awareness of equine crime and improve communication and security between horse owners and riders across the county.
People who are interested can attend a meeting at the Red House Stables Carriage Museum in Darley Dale on Friday, August 12 at 7pm.
For further details contact Inspector Erika Green on 0345 123 33 33.
