Concerns about terrorism were among the views given to the Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner during a survey in three High Peak locations.

Commissioner Alan Charles said that of the 100 people who completed the survey in Glossop, Hadfield and Whaley Bridge, many expressed their concerns about both terrorism and organised crime.

Mr Charles said: “This is hardly surprising considering the recent terrible shootings in Tunisia, and it is important that I hear what they feel about it. Those views, along with their opinions about more local matters, will help us to keep Derbyshire safe.”

On a local level, burglary and theft were highlighted as the main priorities together with safeguarding crimes.

The Over to You annual survey is available online at www.derbyshire-pcc.gov.uk/oty and at the public consultation events across Derbyshire. The results will be published in December.
