More than 120 tubs of chocolate are being circulated around police teams thanks to Derbyshire Police Federation.
The festive gesture aims to serve as a thank you to officers for their efforts during the year.
“2021 has been a tough year all round and we just wanted to show our appreciation to colleagues who, despite the challenges the ongoing pandemic has brought, have remained committed to serving their communities,” says Kirsty Bunn, Federation 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.”
