Sinfin Neighbourhood COPs dates for 2017/18

COPs is an initiative to strengthen community spirit and build safer communities.  This involves Councillors, Streetpride, Derby Homes and the Police, together with local residents leading a high profile and visible patrol.  The idea behind this is to get back to traditional community values of local people looking out for each other and identifying any problems raised in the area.  We will greet and listen so come along and join us.  COPs take place the second Monday of the month at 5.00pm until 6.00pm
