Crime and safety

Connecting you to your Rural Crime Team:

Derbyshire Rural Crime Team

Communities across each rural patch within Derbyshire have their own designated officers. While the whole team are still responsible for the whole of the county, these specific areas help give residents their own point of contact and help develop better local knowledge. If you would like to get in touch, mark your email for the attention of your local officer and send it to: or send a message via the Derbyshire Rural Crime Team Facebook page. Remember, for live or ongoing incidents use the 999 or 101 telephone line. @ruralcrimeteam
