I joined Derbyshire Police at the age of 20 in 2001. I started my service at Chesterfield on the town centre SNT before progressing into response.
It was clear from an early stage that my passion lay with investigations and after 5 years I made the move to CID. In 2007 I was promoted to Sergeant and returned to response at Amber Valley. A few years later I returned to the CID arena as DS on the volume crime team investigating serious acquisitive crime such as dwelling burglary and vehicle crime. In 2013 I had our first daughter and returned to response at Amber Valley.
In 2020, after a short stint as policy and performance Sgt and IQI lead, I transferred back to response at Derbyshire Dales and then got promoted back to Amber Valley in 2021 as section Insp. It’s clear I am meant to be at Amber Valley which is fine with me because I love it.
Amber Valley is a diverse area consisting of both urban and rural locations. My aims and objectives are to promote quality investigations, target Anti-Social Behaviour and Serious Acquisitive Crime offenders and build positive community relationships.
In order to set our priorities for the area the team will do the following –
• Attend council meetings where police and community share concerns and information
• Active social media pages where community ask us questions and informally engage with the team
• Regular high visibility patrols
• Hold a number of events to talk to people to get a better understanding of any issue and concerns
