As your elected representative, it is critical that I understand your needs and expectations for those areas of policing, community safety and victims services for which I am responsible.
I want to understand your views and your priorities for policing so that I, along with the Chief Constable, can try and balance your concerns and the risks and threats already identified with the total resources available for policing.
To this end, I have launched my public engagement and consultation programme “Listening to You” and as part of this, I and my team will be travelling the length and breadth of the county asking you, the residents of Derbyshire to air your views about local policing issues in a series of ongoing public events.
Commissioner Dhindsa consulting with a member of the public
My “listening to you” public safety survey is the county’s largest policing questionnaire and is your opportunity to influence the local police service.
So, if you have something to say about policing and the broader crime agenda, don’t sit in silence – come and share your views. I’m here to listen and I want to help, but I need to know what the problems are to enable me to help find solutions.
No matter where in Derbyshire you live, your views are important to me. I am Commissioner for the whole of Derbyshire and whether you live in an urban, suburban or rural area your views matter and I want to hear them.
In order to let me do this,I have pledged to try and visit all 383 towns and villages in Derbyshire during my term of office. You can follow my progress with this by using the hashtag #D383.
I look forward to meeting you and hearing your views and “together we can make a difference” to ensure that Derbyshire remains one of the safest places in the UK.

If you are unable to make it to one of the events, please take 5 minutes to participate in my “Listening to You” survey available to complete above.
The results for 2019-20 consultation can be viewed here.
Policing During the Pandemic
For people who live in Derbyshire during the lockdown the Police and Crime Commissioner is also interested in your views about policing in your local area during the current pandemic.
If you can, please take a couple of minutes to complete the anonymous survey available here https://bit.ly/C19Policing
No matter where you live in Derbyshire, whether an urban, suburban or rural area, your views are important.
The survey is a quick snapshot of opinion and will close on 7 August. So if you can, please share this with your friends and colleagues so all neighbourhoods have their chance to have their voice heard.
