Putting prospective MPs in the policing picture

Would-be future MPs are to be briefed by Derbyshire’s top two policing figures about issues that include the changing face of crime in the county.

Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Charles and Chief Constable Mick Creedon are inviting local prospective parliamentary candidates to join them at a special briefing event on Monday 9 March.

Commissioner Charles said: “We want our future parliamentary representatives to be in on the ground floor with a clear understanding of policing in Derbyshire. This means ensuring that they are fully aware of what’s involved in keeping our residents and businesses safe from criminal behaviour.

“As possible MPs representing the interests of Derbyshire people, it’s so important that they are up to speed from the word ‘go’ with crime levels across the county, the financial challenges that we are up against and how the Force operates.”

The comprehensive briefing will include details of the make-up of Derbyshire Constabulary and its collaborative working arrangements with neighbouring forces and partners. There will also be opportunities to ask questions and to meet senior team members from both the Commissioner’s Office and from the Force.

Invitations have been sent to main political parties for distribution to candidates and prospective candidates. Anyone planning to stand as an independent candidate is welcome to attend and should either email their interest to pccoffice@derbyshire.pnn.police.uk or contact the office on 0300 122 6000
