I am Sergeant 2959 Neil Milner and I am responsible for this Safer Neighbourhood policing team.

I have worked for Derbyshire Constabulary since 2004 in frontline roles as a response officer, until I was promoted to the role of Sergeant in 2009. My service began in Chesterfield, where I worked for two years before moving to the Amber Valley in 2006. I was promoted to Sergeant and moved to Ilkeston but returned to the Amber Valley in 2012, and became a Safer Neighbourhood team Sergeant in August 2015.

I am committed to providing a high quality service to the public by ensuring my teams are visible, approachable and work alongside partner agencies to target problems affecting the local community. My priorities are to reduce anti-social behaviour and crime.
