The Police and Community Safety Partnerships across Derbyshire are holding Operation Relentless again this year. The theme will be “Safe and Confident”, which is similar to last year and will include the reducing of ASB and alcohol misuse.
Operation Relentless will run from 27th September to 7th November. It is likely that a themed week approach will be adopted; however these are flexible and a local focus for local people’s problems should be adopted.
The planned themed weeks should cover: drugs, alcohol, fire safety, ASB, youth engagement and Community Payback.
We are now tasked with putting together an action plan detailing the activities we will be carrying out over the period. We would therefore be grateful to know of any hotspot areas you know of that are causing problems in the local community within South Derbyshire in terms of litter, graffiti, fly tipping, drug paraphernalia or secondary fires. We can then visit these sites and arrange for them to be cleaned up using Community Payback and/or voluntary groups.
If you would like to pass on any information about hot spot areas, contact:
