I joined the Police in 2001 and my first posting was at Peartree Police Station as a PC. Since then, I have returned to Derby West Section as a DC, SNT Sgt and now LPU Inspector. I have worked at South Division for much of my career so far, both in uniform and as a Detective. I am very happy to be back at Derby West, I am familiar with the area and have always enjoyed working here. I am very much looking forward to working with the Team, Partners and the Community to make Derby West a safe place to live, work and visit.
1: Begging and anti social behaviour at Kingsway Retail park and A road roundabouts. 2: Road safety and speeding vehicles 3: Vehicle interference and theft
Issued 02 February 2024
1: Working in conjunction with various Derby City Council departments to enforce a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO), issuing fixed penalty notices and Community Protection warnings to regular offenders. The PSPO allows officers to disperse persons engaging in anti social behaviour and issue Fixed penalty notices for acts such as littering, begging, loitering and drinking. Working with intervention partners to try and assist in preventing further issues with prolific offenders and supporting their welfare. This work has already been praised by local shops at Kingsway who have noticed a difference already. 2: Nuisance vehicles, speeding along Burton road and Manor way/ Warwick Avenue including several road traffic collisions. Handheld speeding cameras have been utilised by the safer Neighbourhood team at various locations, along with suitable advice, in person and online. Road safety presentations occur regularly at Nursery's and primary schools to ensure young children are equipped with safety advice on using roads and paths. 3: Reports late at night and early hours of the morning of offenders committing vehicle interference- usually in the form of trying car door handles on every vehicle within a certain radius each night. Those left unlocked will have items taken from within. Proactive patrols employing a variety of tactics are being planned to locate and identify offenders. Social media and pop up engagement events are being organised to educate vehicle owners regarding the risk of leaving valuable items on show.
