Students at Derby College Group have been helping an initiative that aims to reduce the number of burglaries in the city.

The Public Services students recently joined Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa and representatives from Derby Homes, for a leaflet drop in the West End area of Derby.

The leaflets offer residents, including previous victims of burglary, the opportunity to have free security upgrades installed.

The scheme is part of a multi-agency partnership to crackdown on theft, burglary and robbery in the West End area.

The PCC secured £514,000 from the Home Office’s £25 million Safer Streets Fund to deliver a catalogue of safety improvements.

These include an advanced CCTV system consisting of 12 (night-vision) high-powered cameras and poles to prevent knife-point robberies, domestic burglaries and shoplifting on key routes within the area.
