Armed Patrols In Place Over The Festive Period

Derbyshire Constabulary says:-

"We will once again be conducting armed foot patrols in several parts of the county over the Christmas and New Year period. In 2017 we made the decision to put armed officers on overt patrol for the first time during the festive period, to help everyone feel safer whilst out and about. This was met with strong public support and provided a reassuring presence to those in our communities. Shoppers and residents can expect to see armed police patrolling busy areas such as shopping centres, events and Christmas markets, from Saturday, December 1. Assistant Chief Constable Kem Mehmet said: "Following last year's successful implementation of armed foot patrols which garnered widespread support from our communities, we have made the decision to run the patrols again this year in areas of heavy footfall.

"Over the past couple of years events across the UK and Europe have understandably raised fear and we hope the patrols will make people feel safe and show them that we are prepared. Mr Mehmet said the officers will be on patrol but will remain near to their vehicles, should they be needed to attend an incident. He added: "People should not be alarmed by the officers, who will be happy to talk to you if they're not dealing with an incident. Please feel free to approach them and speak to them about their role."
