Our Challenges

risk-threat-2016Derbyshire Constabulary is committed to providing a high-quality policing service to local communities and working in partnership with other agencies to tackle crime and disorder in the county.

As part of this commitment, the force reassesses the key risk and threat areas to ensure that we are prioritising the areas of greatest need. This takes place on a six-monthly basis in conjunction with our Community Safety Partners.

Once the key risks and threats have been identified, the force can make strategic decisions around investment, resource allocation and operational priorities. Those areas with a higher level of risk may require greater levels of support and investment.

Although initiatives have been developed across the 13 key risk areas, the environment we police is constantly changing and the force acknowledges the need to adapt to these changes.
