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
