I have more than 20 years’ service with Derbyshire Constabulary.
I have worked all this time in the High Peak, as response PC, Safer Neighbourhoods PC, response Sgt, response Inspector and now a Local Policing Unit (LPU) Inspector.
As a LPU Inspector I believe it is really important that my team put communities at the centre of what we do. I am responsible for the leadership of our response team and our neighbourhood team which is based across two stations at Glossop and Buxton.
It is expected that my officers work hard to investigate crime, bring offenders to justice and to protect the vulnerable. It is vital that we are visible and have good working relationships with our partner agencies to make High Peak a safer place to live, work and visit.
When not doing my day-to-day role, I work hard to improve officers’ mental health support and wellbeing across the force.
