Residents in Chaddesden and Spondon are set to see a new face on the beat as PC Atterbury joins the team.
After serving over seven years in the army and working as a prison officer in Nottingham, Mark Atterbury took on a new challenge of police constable within the force
Since joining Derbyshire Constabulary in January 2013, PC Atterbury has spent his time as a response officer in the Derby North policing area, before taking on the role in the Safer Neighbourhood team.
PC Mark Atterbury said: "I am born and bred in the area so I am most looking forward to helping to make a difference in the communities that I have grown up in.
"Over the coming weeks and months, I will be carrying out foot patrols in the area to meet residents and give people the opportunity to approach me with any issues they may have.
"I also want to improve the link between the police and children in the community so that they can get to know their local Safer Neighbourhood officers better and not be afraid to tell us about any problems in the area."
PC Atterbury will be joining Sergeant Nick Beeston, PCs Vicki Marriott, Steve Meek, Darren Drew and Liam Parker, along with PCSOs Daniel Walker, Matthew Thurman, Andrew Simpson, Tom Sheridan and James Bennett.
