Cops’ warning over doorstep callers

Residents are being urged to protect themselves from suspect doorstep callers.

Police were alerted after residents reported two men offering goods for sale in the areas of Calver Sough, Calver and Monks Dale Close in Tideswell on the afternoon of Friday, August 15.

The offenders were stopped by police and were found to be trading without a pedlars’ certificate.

Both have been strongly advised about the importance of trading with the correct documentation by police.

Officers from the Hathersage and Tideswell Safer Neighbourhood Team are advising people in the area to remain vigilant and to follow some simple safety tips when dealing with doorstep callers. This includes asking to see the identity card of the caller, and if they are selling goods, to ask for their pedlars’ certificate.

For more information or to speak to the policing team, call 101.
