Meet the Commissioner

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.

As Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner, I have worked with the force to deliver on your priorities. And we have made a lot of progress.

We have recruited 351 more police officers which has given us more officers across Derbyshire than ever before to tackle crime and keep people safe.

Our tough approach to anti-social behaviour has seen incidents drop by 50% and through targeted work, home burglaries are now down by 31%.

Average call waiting times for the 101 service are down by 42%, thanks to the extra investment and better technology into the call centre and our hard work in keeping our roads safe has seen fatal collisions fall by 22%. We have also increased the size of our rural crime team to help support rural communities further and fight crime.

I have made many improvements to policing since May 2021 which has made Derbyshire a safer place for all and I will continue the hard work on your behalf.
