Our Safer Neighbourhood team in Derby city centre has a new sergeant in charge.

Sergeant Becky Webster started in her new role yesterday, Tuesday, January 24 and will be in charge of Safer Neighbourhood policing in the city centre. 

Becky began her career with Derbyshire police in June 2000 and started out as a police officer at Cotton Lane Police Station, Derby. She then worked as a Safer Neighbourhood officer in Alvaston before being promoted to sergeant in 2007 when she was in charge of a unit training new police officers in Derby. She has also worked in the custody suite at St Mary’s Wharf Police Station and joins the city centre team from a response role at St Mary’s Wharf. 

Sergeant Webster said: “I am really looking forward to my new post working with the Safer Neighbourhood team in the city centre. Having been a Safer Neighbourhood officer previously I realise how important it is to work in partnership with the public and other agencies to try and solve the longer term issues. 

“As a city centre, the area we cover can be the focus for the surrounding suburbs and so it is vital that Derby remains a safe place to life, visit and work. Like any other busy, vibrant city there are issues for us to deal with and it is my intention to carry on the great work that the team has been doing in tackling those. 

Becky lives in South Derbyshire, she has three children and whilst not spending time with her family and friends enjoys walking in the South Derbyshire countryside with her dog.
