New chief constable starts today

Posted on 1st June 2017
DCC Peter Goodman

The new chief constable for Derbyshire Constabulary takes up his new role today.

Peter Goodman, who is currently our deputy chief constable, today takes over the reins as chief constable from Mick Creedon who retired yesterday after 10 years in the post.

Prior to being our deputy, Peter has served in three forces during his 29 years’ service. He started his career in Nottinghamshire where he served ranks from PC to detective chief inspector. He then moved to the West Midlands before returning to Derbyshire as assistant chief constable and then on to the East Midlands Special Operations Unit as deputy chief constable for the region.

Peter said: “I am really looking forward to my forthcoming service as chief constable. Mick Creedon has left the force in a great position and for that I am very grateful, it certainly makes my job a lot easier!”

“Together with my chief officer team we will be working together to do all that we can to protect the communities of this wonderful county.”
