People living in Melbourne and the surrounding area have a new sergeant in charge of their Safer Neighbourhood Policing Teams.
Sergeant Graham Summers has taken over three teams – which cover the Melbourne, Mercia, Etwall, Hatton and Hilton neighbourhoods.
Sgt. Todd who was previously in place is now managing neighbourhood policing in the Derby West policing section.
Graham’s service spans 21 years with Derbyshire Constabulary where he has served as a Reactive Officer throughout D Division, as well as on the Armed Response Unit and with Roads Policing.
He was also seconded to the Royal Cayman Islands in the British West Indies.
Sgt. Summers said:” Although most of my experience has been responding to emergency calls for service, I am looking forward to tackling matters which affect the life style and living standards of the people of South Derbyshire in partnership with our connected agencies.
“I have lead from the front in a reactive role and I intend to use that experience with my new team and I will be ‘out there’ and visible with them.
“Skills I have learned during my service as a front line police officer are transferable to my new role. I believe in a positive and robust approach when necessary and I will be listening to those in the community with issues and information to offer.”
