The focus of the Assets team is on the force’s building and vehicle assets and covers work from routine maintenance, cleaning, grounds maintenance and capital projects, together with the management and replacement of over 650 force vehicles.
Our current major piece of work is project managing the erection and occupation of the new force headquarters, due to be completed in the summer of 2016.
Based at our current site in Ripley, this is a joint venture with the Derbyshire and Rescue Service. The building will be considerably more environmentally friendly and cost efficient.
There is a real determination to improve our estate where necessary but also to reduce it where possible, working with the Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service and other partners to ensure we have one estate fit for our policing model, providing efficiencies where possible but also best serving the public by delivering local and visible policing.
