I have served as a police officer since 1995 and have worked in many different roles.  I was promoted to Sergeant in 2004 where I worked at Derby North.  Since then I have worked in the Intelligence Unit and frontline at Derby West.   

I  have gained a vast amount of experience over the years and built strong links with partners and agencies in order to tackle crime and disorder.  I look forward to utilising my experience to ensure the community is safe and reassured.  

My aims and priorities are to positively tackle crime and anti-social behaviour along with ensuring the neighbourhood team provides a reassuring visible police presence to the community.  We aim to maintain and develop our links with the community and partners to tackle these issues and where possible, seek long term solutions. 

It is important for us to know about local issues and problems so I would like to encourage the community to speak to us and then work with us to resolve the issues.
