POLICE officers from the Ashbourne and surrounding areas Safer Neighbourhood team will be heading out on the road to encourage people to protect their property.
The team will be visiting Kniveton village between 9am and 3pm on Friday, February 28 for a multi-agency SmartWater initiative.
Police will be working in partnership during the event with agencies including Dales Housing, Safer Derbyshire, Fire and Rescue services and representatives from SmartWater.
During the day of action, the team will be visiting residents to encourage them to protect their property by marking valuables with SmartWater kits.
SmartWater is a forensic based security marking fluid that can be used on property from bikes, electrical items and jewellery to help deter criminals.
Marking items with security kits such as SmartWater can improve the chances of police returning any items if they are stolen and recovered.
Officers will be on hand to offer crime prevention advice during the day and will be speaking to residents about any neighbourhood concerns.
