Derbyshire Constabulary has many specialist wildlife officers who are fully trained in wildlife law and enforcement. These officers cover the entire county. The team has undertaken the national training course for Wildlife Crime Officers which equipped them with the expertise required to investigate a diverse range of wildlife offences. These dedicated officers perform their role of wildlife crime officer on a voluntary basis in addition to their normal police duties.
