On Saturday 27 November, Jay and his brother, sister, mum and dad visited our Force Control Room.
They thought they were there to simply meet our Call Handlers and Despatchers, but there was much more to it…
Jay was also surprised with a visit from our Dog Section, Drone Team, Roads Policing Unit, and was even given a ‘Drone Pilot’ vest and a Derbyshire Custodian Helmet from Chief Constable Rachel Swann to add to his already impressive collection.
Superintendent Steve Pont who arranged the visit said: “It was lovely to be able to give something back to Jay and his family for all of the support they give to police across the country.
“Their tweets are really heart-warming and just really great to see after a challenging shift.
“To see Jay’s face light up at all of the surprises we had planned for him brought warmth to what was otherwise a very cold weekend!”
