Awards made in the Queen’s Birthday Honours to two top Derbyshire police officers plus a tireless supporter of the county’s community and policing are richly deserved, Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Charles said today.
Derbyshire Constabulary’s Assistant Chief Constable Dee Collins and Deputy Chief Constable Peter Goodman of the East Midlands Police Collaboration Programme have each been awarded the Queen’s Police Medal. In addition a former member of the Police Authority, Lloyd Newby, received the MBE for his dedication to the community and his support for Derbyshire Constabulary.
ACC Collins is a prominent supporter of the British Association of Women’s Policing, leads the criminal justice area in the force, the central contact management centre and the specialist operations department. DCC Goodman became Regional Deputy Chief Constable three years ago, managing collaborative issues for the five forces in the East Midlands.
Lloyd Newby’s award reflects his work within the force’s Independent Advisory Group and his highly active years as member of Derbyshire Police Authority until its disbandment last year.
Commissioner Charles added: “These honours are a fitting acknowledgment of the tremendous contribution and outstanding public service all three individuals have made to policing and I am delighted on their behalf.
“I would like to offer my warmest congratulations to them all.”
