The way in which we deliver our HR services has recently gone through transformational change.
A regional learning and development team was established bringing together four of the East Midlands forces. Training delivery remains locally based in Derbyshire, with all the trainers remaining employed by the force, but with direction and management coming from the East Midlands management team.
A regional occupational health unit was also established bringing together all five East Midlands forces. This has seen the harmonisation of policy and processes and the delivery of the service from three main sites with clinics at the other two locations.
The third area of collaboration saw Derbyshire and Leicestershire become the first police forces in the United Kingdom to share their HR system and transactional service centre. The system manages both forces’ data for HR, training, duty management and health and safety, and has delivered significant economies of scale.

- Health and wellbeing
- Training services
- Staff terms and conditions
