'C Division' is a rich mixture of towns, old mining communities and rural locations, it covers the district/borough council areas of Chesterfield, Bolsover, North East Derbyshire and Amber Valley with a total population of around 400,000 people. Policing is carried out using a combination of reactive, neighbourhood and investigative teams, and our priorities are focused on the community we serve in line with our values of integrity, respect, performance, responsibility and innovation.
Protecting vulnerable people
Reducing and detecting crime(including anti - social behaviour)
Being visible and providing reassurance to communities
Providing value for money in everything we do
Partnership working is very important to us, the police alone cannot tackle all the issues which can threaten the safety of individuals and communities.
Our policing sections mirror the district/borough council areas, each is headed by an inspector who is responsible for the day-to-day policing in that community, which is undertaken from local police stations.
I am keen to ensure that the service we deliver is of the highest standard possible. Whilst this division has not escaped from the public service cuts, I will do everything I possibly can to ensure that the public receive the service they need.
