‘Derbyshire police are continuing their pledge to work with partners across the county to make people feel safer in their community. Operation Relentless – Safe and Confident is a six-week initiative during which officers will work with more than 100 organisations, such as councils and the fire service, to target anti-social behaviour in all its forms. The operation runs between Monday, September 28 and Sunday, November 8, tying in with the traditional historical increases in anti-social behaviour around half term, Halloween and Bonfire Night.
As part of the initiative, people will be asked what they feel are priorities in their area, such as nuisance youths, drug dealing, fly tipping, speeding or graffiti. Local Safer Neighbourhood police officers will work with partners across the county to tackle these problems. The operation aims to improve communities, make people feel safer and increase confidence in the police service and partner agencies.’
