Derbyshire Policing Priorities

Good morning,
I hope you are well and that you have had a pleasant start to 2022.
Help make sure your residents views are fully represented by Derbyshire Police
Derbyshire is a hugely diverse County. Different areas require a different approach to policing and will have different priorities. The needs of residents in Derbyshire Dales will not be the same as those in Derby City.
It’s important to me as Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner that the priorities I set for policing, community safety and victims services reflect the issues that matter most to you and your residents. I also understand that people want to see the police service that they pay for. They want to see the problems that affect them, in their neighbourhood, being addressed effectively.
That is why I am running my ‘Listening to You’ survey.
This survey lets Derbyshire residents tell me their policing priorities. Using the results from this survey, I will work with the Chief Constable to ensure that resources are balanced efficiently with your residents’ concerns, and investment is used wisely to improve front line policing.
If you could please complete and share the survey link below with your Parish Councillors and on your social media, e-newsletters and mailing lists it would be greatly appreciated:
Listening To You – Your policing priorities
The results of the survey will be published in the Summer, and I will be happy to share a copy of the results with you when they are published.
Thank you in advance for your help. If you have any questions regarding this survey, please let me know and I will do my best to answer them.
Kind regards,

Angelique Foster
Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner

Dog Fouling

Dog fouling continues to be a problem in and around our village, can ALL dog owners please pick up their dogs' business when exercising their dogs? This includes any fouling on public footpaths, roads, grass verges, fields and play areas.
There has been a significant increase of dogs fouling in the village with owners not picking up their dogs excrement. I am sure you can appreciate this is not acceptable and can be a risk to health. It is also a serious risk to livestock who may be grazing in the fields and we are aware of impacts on such livestock. We therefore reiterate, on behalf of Marston Montgomery Parish Council, how important it is to clean up after your dogs.
Many thanks. MM Parish Council
