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.
Insp Daron Abbott
