Ongoing Police matters
The Town Council are aware of several reoccurring issues of unsociable behaviour on the Welfare and parking congestion by schools and have raised those concerns with the Police. We would like to remind you to contact the Police on 101 should you have an incident to report, this is important to make sure that records are created and if necessary resource can be allocated without delay. Unnecessary or wilful obstructions of pavements are dealt with by the Police, however all other parking matters should be reported to the Civil Enforcement Officers (CEO) at Amber Valley Borough Council on 01773 570222 or enquiries@ambervalley.gov.uk
Councillor Steve Marshall-Clarke said We are keen to work with the Police to resolve issues in Alfreton and ask that any concerns are raised through 101 to create a picture of what incidents are happening and when so that the Police can respond accordingly. The Town Council are happy to liaise on behalf of residents however for emergency incidents residents must use 101 or 999.
