In the last ten years I have built up my experience and knowledge by working in a variety of roles and units including response, investigations, neighbourhoods and pro-active teams, mainly at Derby West and Derby North sections.  

I aim to work with the community and partners in order that we be as effective as possible in preventing crime and anti-social behaviour, protecting vulnerable people and attacking the criminal networks that operate in the local area. I will ensure that my officers provide reassurance by being visible and also by being pro-active in targeting those who would cause harm within the community.  

Please have confidence in approaching us and reporting issues. The police cannot operate successfully without the support and assistance of the community, so it is important that we work together to tackle problems.
