Commissioner Dhindsa formally launched the Derbyshire Rural Crime Survey in Tansley on Thursday, 19 April.
He joined one of the Wildlife Crime Officers for a rural patch walk in the area.
This survey has been adapted specifically for Derbyshire residents from the 2018 National Rural Crime Survey, being carried out by the National Rural Crime Network. It is designed to provide Mr Dhindsa with a clear picture of rural criminality in the county, preventative measures that are being taken by members of the rural community and identify particular problems in different areas of the County.
The responses will help shape the way rural policing is delivered in the future.
Mr Dhindsa said "I want to give everyone living or working in a rural area the opportunity to tell me about their experiences of crime and what they felt about the standard of the police response."
A similar survey was carried out in 2015 and Mr Dhindsa is also keen to see what changes have occurred since then.
