Burglary and theft

This is sometimes referred to as 'acquisitive crime.' It includes domestic burglary, theft of a motor vehicle and robbery.

Burglary and theft can have a large impact on a victim and the local community.  Although this crime in Derbyshire is falling, partners in community safety continue to work together to reduce these crimes even further.

Derbyshire police have information on keeping your home safe, with door and window security advice, garden and shed security. It also advises that your local community should launch a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme, to share knowledge and information on keeping safe as well as looking out for one another.
