Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Charles said today that he was delighted to welcome Hardyal Dhindsa as his Deputy following the Police and Crime Panel’s unanimous recommendation of his appointment.
A Derby city councillor, the new Deputy Commissioner has spent 30 years tackling drugs and domestic abuse. His wealth of experience includes leading on the integrated Domestic Abuse programme in Nottinghamshire during which time he has worked with a multi-agency approach to offenders and victims.
Mr Charles added: “Hardyal Dhindsa’s work with Nottinghamshire Probation Trust, his excellent community links and the two years spent with the Crime and Drugs Partnership in Nottingham, leading on the drugs programme, will be invaluable.
“This experience, plus the work he has done on the Alcohol Treatment programme, will be of great benefit to me and to the people of Derbyshire in our fight against crime.”
Mr Dhindsa was selected for the role of Deputy from a shortlist of six high calibre candidates.
