I am Sergeant Nick Pitt and I am responsible for the Long Eaton Safer Neighbourhood Team.

I have served as a Derbyshire Constabulary police officer since 1992 in a variety of roles, in uniform and as a detective. In those roles I have gained valuable experience in both reactive and community policing that I intend to build upon here at Long Eaton.

I am committed to providing the very best service I can and will ensure my teams do the same, working with our partners to tackle the issues that matter to you.

My priorities are to reduce anti-social behaviour and crime to make our community a safe and pleasant place to live, work and visit.

Crime Information
