I joined Derbyshire Constabulary in 2005 as a Special Constable before working as a call operator. I then went on to be a PCSO and I have held various roles in the Constabulary working predominantly in the South Division.
I have a background in Safer Neighbourhood policing having worked as a PCSO and a Police Constable in several areas of the city.
I consider it a privilege to work for the police. Derby East is a densely populated residential area that present challenges around domestic violence, acquisitive crime and ASB. We are working tirelessly with partners to address issues, to prevent reoffending and create a safer community
1.Targeted High visible patrols at peak times to build intelligence and information to deter drug dealing activity. Visit schools and carry out early engagement for prevention education and intervention. Progress and action Community lead intelligence by carrying out drugs warrants in the local area. A Warrant was executed by the safer neighbourhood team In The Osmaston area after intelligence in relation to drug dealing was received. Class A drugs were seized which are thought to have a substantial street value. There is still an issue with drugs dealers using vulnerable people's houses to deal. I encourage you to report any suspicious activity. 2. High visible patrols and plain clothes patrols have taken place in areas identified to deter Anti Social behaviour. Targeted patrols are taking place in relation to a group of youths in Sinfin. The group have received 6 charges against them for damage, assault and harassment. We work closely with our partners to identify those responsible for causing Antisocial behaviour and ensure positive action is taken. 3. Targeted operations and High visibility patrols to build intelligence and information around knife crime and weapons. Op Sceptre is a national, weeklong initiative to tackle knife crime. Knife Sweeps which take place at local parks and green spaces. Schools inputs are delivered to focus on education and early engagement, prevention and enforcement to crack down on weapons-related crime and violence. Amnesty bins are placed in the Community where you can safely dispose of a knife. 4. A Problem management plan has been generated for nuisance bikes and a hot spot patrol strategy has been put in place for High visible patrols over the summer months to try and reduce the the number of reports for this problem. Numerous calls received from members of the public and those that are most vulnerable in our communities. I encourage you all to report any incidents of Antisocial behaviour or crimes through 101 service or online via the Derbyshire Police Website, the earlier we are made aware of the problems the more affective we can be in tackling them.
