Police Interceptor returns to City as new Inspector for Derby suburbs

Posted on 18th January 2017
Inspector Greg Hunt

One of our officers who worked in the Road Crime Unit featured in TV’s Interceptors has returned to the city as a police inspector. 

Inspector Greg Hunt has taken over from Andrea Parkin and is now in charge of policing covering the residential and industrial areas of Allenton, Alvaston, Boulton, Chellaston, Shelton Lock, Sinfin, Osmaston and parts of Pride Park. 

Greg, who is 35 years-old grew up in Derby and joined Derbyshire police in 2001. Having passed through his initial training he was stationed as a police constable at St Mary’s Wharf police station in Derby. He then served in various pro-active units including two years in the road crime unit featured in the Channel 5 TV show. 

In 2012 Greg was promoted to Sergeant, posted to North division and as a result also went to live in the North Derbyshire area with his family. Greg was promoted to Inspector in 2015 and worked as a response Inspector in Chesterfield before starting his latest appointment last Monday, January 9. 

Inspector Hunt said: “It’s great to be coming back to work at Cotton Lane police station, one of the stations I worked from as a PC. 

“I have worked on Safer Neighbourhood teams as both a PC and a sergeant so realise how important it is to listen to the community about the problems they are experiencing. We can’t solve everything on our own but I have always felt it is important to work hard as a police service and with our partners to do all we can to make our communities safe places to live, visit and work. I have a robust style of policing and will relentlessly pursue individuals who seek to harm the community.”
