I am Sgt Gemma Thursfield the Safer Neighbourhood Sergeant for Darley, Allestree and Mackworth. 

I joined Derbyshire Police in 2003 and worked for several years at Swadlincote police station as a response and investigation officer. 

I have also worked as a PC in the Melbourne and Chaddesden Safer Neighbourhood Teams before being promoted to Sergeant in 2017 and moving to St Mary’s Wharf police station. 

I am now looking forward to working with the community and agencies and ask that as members of the community you approach and speak with my team. This way we can work together to try and solve any issues you may have.
