Citizens and Councillors on Patrol in 2017/18

The Citizens and Councillors on Patrol (COPs) initiative aims to tackle the perception of crime, strengthen community spirit and resolve community issues. This involves councillors and local residents leading high profile and visible patrols. The idea behind this is to get back to traditional community values of local people looking out for each other. Patrols take place in a different part of the community within the Derwent Ward. We walk, talk, listen, litter pick and deal with issues we come across. You are welcome to join us on:
