Meet the new Commissioner

Angelique Foster has been a key figure in local government politics for more than a decade.

Originally from France, Mrs Foster has lived in Derbyshire for 25 years and is married with a grown-up family. 

With a Masters Degree in Law from Sheffield University, Mrs Foster has served as Leader of Dronfield Town Council and as Cabinet member for Corporate Services at Derbyshire County Council. Her portfolio includes: Finance, Legal, Property, HR and IT, and responsibility for managing a budget of £46million.

Mrs Foster recently resigned from her role to take on her new responsibilities as Derbyshire’s PCC and is determined to manage the budget effectively to maximise resources for fighting crime.

She has pledged to put the law-abiding citizen at the centre of all policing policies and priorities in Derbyshire to keep local people and their families safe.

Central to her ambitions is reducing the fear of crime across Derbyshire’s communities by increasing police numbers and patrols, providing a strong police presence in towns and villages and supporting Police Officers in the use of powers such as Stop and Search to protect communities from crime.

She also aims to work with the Government to deliver a tougher approach to policing, strengthen partnership work locally to improve safety, tackle antisocial behaviour, drive down burglaries, robberies and theft, improve road safety, fight rural crime and address domestic violence and drug-related crime.

Police and Crime Commissioner Angelique Foster said: “From child exploitation to recent harrowing murders, we have seen shocking crimes that have brought gender-based violence into sharp focus.

“I’m pleased to support White Ribbon Day, as I support other effective campaigns designed to prevent violence at every level.

“I want to see far-reaching and sustainable change to ensure the safety of people on our streets and in our homes. My recent Public Assurance Meeting focussed on such violence. I have made it clear that I will continue to scrutinise the work to reduce offending and support victims.

“I want to see a zero-tolerance approach to violence and I expect the police and partners to do everything in their power to achieve this.”

Police and Crime Commissioner Angelique Foster is conducting a major survey to identify what makes women and girls feel unsafe in Derbyshire, where their fear of crime is greatest and what would make them feel safer. The results will help to inform where resources are most needed and will further support Derbyshire Constabulary in tackling male violence.
