Residents from across Glossopdale are being urged to attend a second meeting with Derbyshire police chiefs to discuss policing in the area tonight (Tuesday).

Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa and Inspector Barry Doyle will this time be joined by Debbie Mathews, the Police Divisional Commander for North Derbyshire.

Called by South East Glossop Residents’ Association, the meeting will start at 7:30pm at Glossop Golf Club on Hurst Road.

More than 100 people turned out at a meeting last October with Mr Dhindsa and Inspector Doyle, who is in charge of policing in the High Peak, to express their concerns.

In a statement, SEGRA said: “For those who attended the previous meeting, you will be aware that Inspector Doyle was not able to answer a number of questions regarding our concerns, as it was not his decision to remove officers from Glossop.

“SEGRA have worked hard to get the police to send a senior officer who was responsible for making the decision.

“Now we have managed this, it would be great to fill the room again so they go back to Derby knowing we are seriously concerned here about the increase in crime and lack of resources.

“I would ask everyone to make every effort to not only attend but spread the word and bring a friend or neighbour.

“SEGRA not only care about their area but the whole of Glossopdale.”
