A new Inspector has been appointed to take the helm of policing in the High Peak area.

Inspector Nick Reason has taken the reins from Inspector Phil Booth, who has moved on to a new role in Operational Support.

Although originally from Derby, Insp. Reason is no stranger to the High Peak having spent the majority of his 22 year career in the area.

He first joined Derbyshire Constabulary in 1996 at just 18 years old, and was posted to the response and patrol teams in Buxton.

Nick has a background in investigation, having worked as a detective covering the High Peak and Derbyshire Dales, but was also the Safer Neighbourhood policing team Sergeant for the Chapel-en-le-Frith and New Mills areas for a number of years.

For the past year, Insp. Reason has been based at Chesterfield, overseeing the response teams covering North Division.

Insp. Reason said: “I’m really pleased to be given this opportunity; it really feels like I’m coming home as most of my career has been spent in the High Peak and I know the area very well.

“We do have a good relationship here with the community, who will work well with us and I hope to continue this, while working in partnership with other local agencies to keeping our communities safe.”

He added: “Whilst policing the High Peak offers varying challenges, I am confident that the officers who work here are as enthusiastic, passionate and committed as I am about doing the right thing for everyone who lives, works or visits the High Peak.”
