Any home is a potential target for burglars; some are more appealing than others and some offer themselves up with a bow that begs to be opened.
Around 60 homes in Grangewood have been visited by police, housing officers and local councillors to discuss neighbourhood concerns.
People living on Chertsey Close and Melling Close were asked if there were any issues that the local Safer Neighbourhood policing team or Chesterfield Borough Council could help with.
Councillor Jenny Flood, who represents the Rother Ward, also attended to meet local residents and ask about any problems they were facing.
PCSO Zoe Blount of the Holmebrook and Rother Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team, who cover Grangewood, said: "We go out and visit resident's homes together with partnership agencies regularly, as not everyone feels confident enough to contact the police or attend surgeries or meetings.
"Most of our residents said they were happy with their area but a few issues were raised around anti-social behaviour which we will work alongside partnership agencies to address these concerns over the next few months."
Residents were also offered the chance to sign up to Derbyshire Alert, a free messaging system where residents can select to receive news, appeals and local crime information directly from the police.
PCSO Blount added: "We hope to carry out further partnership visits to homes in the future as it is a way in which we can maximise the opportunity to consult with our local community."
The visits took place on Monday, May 25th.
