Success for Derbyshire Alert


Police have thanked the public for their help after their pleas for information led to the arrest of two suspects.

A rural crime alert was sent to residents about a white van seen in the Brassington area which was believed to have been involved in the theft of a quantity of lead from a farm. (This was posted on Parwich.Org on 19 May)

Following the appeal, members of the public came forward with information confirming the identity of van and descriptions of the suspected offenders. Police arrested two suspects within minutes of the message going out.

Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa was responsible for reinstating the Alert messaging system after his election last year.

He said: “This latest success shows how important the Derbyshire Alert system is to gather intelligence and ultimately detect crime.

“I would like to thank the public for their continuing response to the information appeals we issue. Thousands of people have registered with the site since the end of September and the facility is already proving its weight in gold as a crime prevention service.”

One of those who came forward with information that led to the arrest, congratulated the team saying: “Well done, it’s very satisfying to know the system is working for us all.”

Livestock Worrying


Following a recently reported case of Livestock worrying in the Derbyshire Dales area the owner and dog have been identified and the dog destroyed. The dog in question killed one sheep and injured 3 others.

We take matters of livestock worrying seriously and understand the financial impact this can have, especially at this time of year.  Although we accept it can be difficult to identify the dogs and their owners please still report it to the police, the above proves positive results can be achieved.  This will only assist in promoting the issue and hopefully lead to greater awareness amongst dog owners.

Please report any cases of livestock worrying via 101 or alternatively if you have any information relating to livestock worrying or any other rural matters please e-mail
