Derbyshire Dales LPU

 Daron Abbott
Inspector Daron Abbott
Inspector for this area

The Derbyshire Dales Local Policing Unit incorporates most of the Peak District National Park, from Hathersage in the north to Sudbury in the south, with many rural villages scattered in between.

I am Inspector Daron Abbott and I am responsible for policing the Derbyshire Dales Local Policing Unit, covering areas such as Ashbourne, Bakewell, Matlock and Tideswell.

I have been a police officer for more than 25 years, having first joined Derbyshire Constabulary in 1992. During my career I have worked mostly in frontline response roles all across Derbyshire, as well as in the force control room and within the criminal justice department.

The Derbyshire Dales is a great place to live, work and visit, and I hope to continue to maintain low levels of crime. Like all areas, there are still issues to address and I hope to continue the close working relationship with our partners to tackle these.

The help of the community is vital in helping us to
target crime and anti-social behaviour, and I hope to maintain the good links
we have with our local residents and work to keep the Derbyshire Dales safe.
