Anti-social behaviour drive



Have your say

Derbyshire police joined forces with the British Transport Police to target drug use and anti-social behaviour on train lines in the New Mills and Hayfield area.

Twelve officers from the local Safer Neighbourhood Team, alongside the revenue enforcement team, patrolled New Mills Central and New Mills Newtown stations with a passive drugs dog and carried out stop searches.

Safer neighbourhood team officers from Glossop also took part in the operation.

Sergeant Phil Booth from the New Mills and Hayfield Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “We know much of the crime committed in New Mills and Hayfield is from people travelling into the town, be that via the roads or the railways.

“The drive was a great opportunity for us to work in partnership with the British Transport Police to keep commuters and local residents safe from would-be criminals.”

The Beat Sweep drive involved nine days of pro-active policing to tackle concerns affecting residents in the New Mills and Hayfield areas.
