I am Sergeant 135 Paul Simmons and I have responsibility for this Safer Neighbourhood policing team.
I have been a police officer for more than 25 years, and during my career I have worked in Derby and Matlock as well as in specialist roles as an Officer Safety Trainer, a Firearms Officer on the Armed Response Unit and as a Firearms Instructor.
Our priorities in the Derbyshire Dales are to work to keep our communities safe, and to deal robustly with anti-social behaviour, substance misuse and serious and organised crime.
Residents in the Derbyshire Dales should be reassured that we will continue to use our resources in the best way possible to help protect the vulnerable and to work with partnership agencies to target issues which are affecting our communities.
