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.

Road safety is a key priority in my Police and Crime Plan and I will work to make sure that we act upon concerns of residents.

Tackling the ‘Fatal 4’ is extremely important to reduce accidents and I will be working with Derbyshire Police to roll out a tough and robust approach to these offences.

Police visibility is key to having stronger and more effective neighbourhood policing across our Derbyshire communities, which will help reduce crime and keep residents safe.

My Police and Crime Plan will deliver the additional officers needed in Derbyshire. These will be working alongside additional PCSOs, Special Constables and other citizens within policing to prevent crime.

More police officers will soon be on the streets of Derbyshire after Police and Crime Commissioner Angelique Foster welcomed the latest recruits at their attestation this week.

Student officers who have completed their initial training through the Degree Holder Entry Programme, will soon be posted to locations across Derbyshire alongside experienced officers to be on the frontline of policing to protect and serve the public.

“It was great to meet the latest intake of student officers who have joined Derbyshire Constabulary through our Degree Holder Entry Programme. Delivering more officers is a major part of my Police and Crime Plan which will increase police visibility and offer stronger local policing across Derbyshire.”

The programme is for people who already have a bachelor’s degree (or equivalent level 6 qualification) or in their final year of study in any subject. To express an interest ahead of applications opening in April, visit
