Derbyshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Hardyal Dhindsa, celebrated the 200th visit on his #D383 tour with a trip to the County Show.
The Commissioner, who agreed to visit all 383 towns and villages in the County during his four year of office, is now well over the halfway mark, with a visit to Dale Abbey on Sunday morning taking the tally to 200.
Since he took up the PCC role, he has been travelling the length and breadth of the county to meet local people and listen to their views, posting visits on social media site for those following his journey.
He has learned about the very localised problems affecting different areas and in response has taken direct action to help.
The County Show provided another opportunity in a busy day for people to talk to him and tell him their views on policing. His team were out and about with his survey ‘Listening to You’ and were joined by the Commissioner for part of the day, before he went to Repton and Lullington to talk to residents there.
Hardyal Dhindsa said: “This tour is making a tangible difference to the quality of life in communities. It is highlighting localised problems and enabling me to try and help those affected in the most effective way possible.
“I was pleased to have the opportunity to drop into the County Show to celebrate the very best of Derbyshire on display. It is a really popular event and it was good to see so many people enjoying the fabulous weather and fantastic entertainment.”
