Fighting crime in Derbyshire


In 2016 - 2017, Crimestoppers received at total of 2,400 contacts in relation to 2,744 crimes across Derbyshire. The crimes reported on ranged from theft to violent acts, to drugs, to murder. The community of Derbyshire is committed to making Derbyshire a safer place to live.

"Derbyshire’s Committee is being revitalised and the new Chairman, Jane Orton, is currently building the number of volunteers who sit on the committee. We are looking for people who are passionate about the community they live in and are willing to raise the profile of Crimestoppers in Derbyshire, as well as educate people about different crime types. We're looking for people who will attend events and spread the Crimestoppers message, and who are also willing to fundraise, facilitate events, project manage campaigns and promote Crimestoppers." - Lydia Patsalides, East Midlands Regional Manager.

Chairman Jane Orton says: "Our volunteers play such a key role in our communities, and I would be delighted to see more bright and enthusiastic members of the public join us in Derbyshire. You can dedicate as much or as little time as you like – every little helps, and your efforts will be rewarded with the satisfaction that you are playing a part in keeping your community safe.”
