Around 180 tubs of chocolate will be circulated around police teams over the coming weeks – courtesy of Derbyshire Police Federation.
The festive gesture is intended as a thank you to officers for their efforts during 2020.
“We recognise that this year has been tough for everyone and just wanted to show our appreciation,” says Kirsty Bunn, Federation branch secretary.
“The Federation’s plans have been approved by Operation Talla as there were some concerns about us encouraging the sharing of food but we would just urge everyone to be sensible. The wrapped sweets can be emptied onto a table so that officers can select their favourites rather than rummaging around in the tub. I think it’s just a case of ‘safe sharing’ and being Covid aware.”
