There is an active Neighbourhood Watch operating in Brassington, which aims to bring neighbours together to create a strong, friendly and active community where crime and antisocial behaviour are less likely to happen. In Brassington this is second nature to many residients.
The scheme consists of 15 street co-ordinators looking after their immediate neighbourhoods. All households have been visited with crime prevention information leaflets and window stickers. Every effort is made to speak to new residents after they move in to to welcome them to the village and in addition to Watch Information, appraise them of how the village communicates via its website, Facebook page, Parish Magazine and newsletter.
Residents can also opt to take part in a community messaging service, Derbyshire Alert, where they receive an email, telephone or mobile message to advise them of any incidents or suspicious behavour happening in and around Brassington.
For further information contact the overall Watch co-ordinator for Brassington, Sandra Atkinson on 01629 540628 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Brassington is policed by the Tissington and Carsington Safer Neighbourhood Team based in Ashbourne. This in turn is part of Derbyshire Dales Local Policing Unit which is one of five which form part of the North Division of Derbyshire Constabulary.
