Police stations across Derbyshire are being visited by the Chief Constable, as part of an ongoing schedule of activity.
Over the next few weeks, CC Rachel Swann is meeting officers and staff, listening to their concerns and addressing some of the issues that have been raised by communities.
Chief Constable Rachel Swann said: “It is really important that those working on the front line get a regular chance to meet a chief officer, that they know we aren’t just sat up at headquarters but want to get a true picture of what working life is like for them, with an honest reflection of the challenges they face. It gives me a chance to listen and understand where issues need addressing and allows them to hear first-hand about the areas of priority for the force.
“Our officers and staff have a lot of brilliant ideas about how we can improve our service, and changes that can quickly be made to support the public, and this gives us an opportunity to get out there and listen to them.”
This is part of a regular programme of events, where the Chief Constable and Deputy Chief Constable Kate Meynell will be visiting all of the force’s stations.
So far, CC Swann has attended Dronfield, Newbold, Chesterfield, Killamarsh, Staveley and Clowne.
