Derby East LPU

Inspector Jo Meakin
Inspector for this area

Welcome to the Derby East LPU. We are based at Cotton Lane police station, in Derby, and we cover the residential and industrial areas of Allenton, Alvaston, Boulton, Chellaston, Shelton Lock, Sinfin, Osmaston and parts of Pride Park.


I joined Derbyshire Constabulary in 2001 and have worked in numerous roles throughout the force including reactive, Safer Neighbourhoods and custody. 

Since promotion to Sgt in 2007 I have worked mostly within South Division on Safer Neighbourhood teams and more latterly the custody suite.

I have also worked at headquarters on projects which have given me a greater depth of understanding regarding public and private sector working styles.

The police and the partnerships on East Section are already working together to ensure that we provide a high quality policing and partnership service to the communities in Derbyshire. I hope the team will continue to develop and build on the current and strong relationships, in turn encouraging everyone to listen to each other and have a voice.

I am very excited to be joining them and aim to be a visible leader and go the extra mile to encourage the community to flourish.
