Derbyshire Police announce they're investing in 120 new members of staff

It's part of the 'Safer Together' campaign.

Derbyshire Police have launched a new campaign to highlight its investment in 120 new staff.

It'll mean more front line officers working in local communities across the county.

Assistant chief constable Paul Gibson hopes it'll give the public more confidence in the force; "We've recognised the fact that we need to reinvest in our Safer Neighbourhood Teams and really engage with residents. We want to build a sense of pride and legitimacy when we work with the member's of the public."

He reckons the funding is a step in the right direction; "We have over 120 staff that have been invested into policing here, which doesn't replace the levels of cuts we've seen over the past ten years. However, what it does do, is start to reintroduce some really important roles back into our policing service."
