New cameras mean safety

Have your say

VULNERABLE residents in Derbyshire are safer in their homes thanks to new safety equipment fitted to their doors.

Homes, in Clowne, Grassmoor, Tibshelf and Whitwell, have been fitted with a front door camera.

All of the residents receiving the cameras have been previous victims of distraction burglary.

Now, thanks to the cameras they able to see who is outside their front door before opening it.

DC Chris Bond from Derbyshire Police, who specialises in tackling distraction burglaries, said: “This is a fantastic scheme. If these residents are victims in the future we’ll have more evidence.”
