Erewash LPU

Jim Thompson Insp
Inspector Jim Thompson
Inspector for this area

Positioned between Derby, Leicester and Nottingham, Erewash Local Policing Unit incorporates both Ilkeston, Long Eaton and their surrounding villages and towns.

I am the Section Inspector for the Erewash LPU

I have been a police officer for 18 years and have worked within reactive and community policing on both South and North Divisions.

Here at Erewash we have a committed policing team and aim to provide the best possible service for our community. It is important we listen to our community and work with our partner agencies to tackle and problem solve the issues that affect them the most. I will endeavour to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour and robustly target those who make the lives of others a misery.  

As Inspector it’s important I have the right resources in the right places to deal with the risk and threat that is presented to us to continue to make Erewash a safe place to live and visit.
