Insp Dave Parker
Inspector Dave Parker
Inspector for this area

Welcome to Amber Valley Local Policing Unit.

Our area covers the middle of Derbyshire, taking in towns such as Ripley, Belper, Alfreton and South Normanton.

I am the Local Policing Unit Inspector for the Amber Valley and have responsibility for policing in Alfreton, South Normanton, Swanwick, Ripley, Heanor, Belper, Duffield, Crich and the surrounding areas.

I have been a police officer since 1997 and have carried out many roles within policing and I am very familiar with the Amber Valley area having lived in the local area for more than 20 years.

During my service, I have worked throughout the county with roles in response, rural crime, scenes of crime and in partnership roles with district councils and county councils, with a particular focus on community safety, safeguarding and children’s services.

I fully understand the importance of listening to local people and identifying and tackling local problems and I am committed to targeting crime and reduce anti-social behaviour.

We will continue to work with our partner agencies and I would urge our communities to work with us providing community intelligence that will enable us to target criminals. This is a very safe place to live, work and visit and I aim to maintain this.

Insp. Dave Parker
