Safer Neighbourhood Team Sergeants

My name is Sergeant Graham Summers and I am responsible for this Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team.

I have served as a police officer for 21 years with Derbyshire Constabulary where I have worked as a Reactive Officer throughout D Division, as well as on the Armed Response Unit and with Roads Policing. I was also seconded to the Royal Cayman Islands in the British West Indies.

Although most of my experience has been responding to emergency calls for service, I am looking forward to tackling matters which affect the life style and living standards of the people of South Derbyshire in partnership with our connected agencies.

I have lead from the front in a reactive role and I intend to use that experience with my new team and I will be ‘out there’ and visible with them.

Skills I have learned during my service as a front line police officer are transferable to my new role. I believe in a positive and robust approach when necessary and I will be listening to those in the community with issues and information to offer.  


Safer Neighbourhood Meetings

Crime Information


Crime Mapping allows us to show you where crime is happening at a local level, so we can better engage with our communities and help them determine how best to police the area they live in.
