Angelique Foster has been a key figure in local government politics for more than a decade.

Originally from France, Mrs Foster has lived in Derbyshire for 25 years and is married with a grown-up family. 

With a Masters Degree in Law from Sheffield University, Mrs Foster has served as Leader of Dronfield Town Council and as Cabinet member for Corporate Services at Derbyshire County Council. Her portfolio includes: Finance, Legal, Property, HR and IT, and responsibility for managing a budget of £46million.

Mrs Foster recently resigned from her role to take on her new responsibilities as Derbyshire’s PCC and is determined to manage the budget effectively to maximise resources for fighting crime.

She has pledged to put the law-abiding citizen at the centre of all policing policies and priorities in Derbyshire to keep local people and their families safe.

Central to her ambitions is reducing the fear of crime across Derbyshire’s communities by increasing police numbers and patrols, providing a strong police presence in towns and villages and supporting Police Officers in the use of powers such as Stop and Search to protect communities from crime.

She also aims to work with the Government to deliver a tougher approach to policing, strengthen partnership work locally to improve safety, tackle antisocial behaviour, drive down burglaries, robberies and theft, improve road safety, fight rural crime and address domestic violence and drug-related crime.

Community Speedwatch (CSW) groups play a proactive role in limiting speeding in hotspot areas. Over 600 volunteers across Derbyshire are already supporting the work of the Police in tackling speeding throughout their community.

More Community Speedwatch groups are already being setup in local communities. I urge more residents to work with their Parish Council and community groups across their area to drive down speeding in their villages and towns.

Applicants can also apply for up to £3000 of funding through my Road Safety Grant to help set up a dedicated Community Speedwatch in their area.

To set up your own Community Speedwatch or to join an active group in your area, contact your local SNT via the Derbyshire Police website. Alternatively, contact the CSW team on admincsw@derbyshire.police.uk

Good to be in Melbourne to meet with local Parish Councillors from across the South Derbyshire District to present my Police and Crime Plan which sets out the policing priorities in Derbyshire and how we can improve safety for all.

It was also an opportunity for local councillors to discuss specific concerns they have which included speeding, officer recruitment, burglaries and anti social behaviour.

I was joined by South Derbyshire Inspector Mike Sisman who responded to operational concerns and also highlighted the good work that is being done across communities in South Derbyshire by local Safer Neighbourhood Teams.

My plan promotes and support further partnership working between residents, councils and Safer Neighbourhood Teams to ensure that any local issues can be tackled at the earliest opportunity.
