This Safer Neighbourhood area covers Killamarsh. It belongs to the Clay Cross and North East policing section. Killamarsh is a small town, populated by almost 10,000 people, situated in the east of Chesterfield division, close to the South Yorkshire border, within 6 miles from Sheffield centre. The town grew mainly as a result of the mining industry, although the last mine (Highmoor) closed shortly after the end of the 1984/5 miners strike. The town has a parish council based in the centre of the town.

Safer Neighbourhood Team Sergeants

  • Sergeant 3228 Shirley

I am Sergeant Shirley and I am responsible for this Safer Neighbourhood policing team.

I have worked for Derbyshire Constabulary since 2006 in frontline role as a Police Constable and was promoted to the role of Sergeant in 2013 and joined the Safer Neighbourhood team in June 2016. I am based at Killamarsh Police Station and will ensure that my team and I will work with the communities, and partner agencies to make our area safer for everyone.

My priorities are to tackle the long standing problems of illegal motor vehicles being used on our roads, pavements and parks and to target acquisitive crime by getting out an about in the early hours and running pro-active operations when required. We will also look to actively promote Neighbourhood Watch, so it is given a new lease of life and to make use of social media to ensure our good results are shared with all.

My team will work with schools and communities to safeguard children and build up strong links with our residents, and ensure the most vulnerable in our community are protected from harm. We also endeavour to maintain a visible presence within our communities as often as possible.
