Derbyshire’s High Sheriff spent time with Derbyshire Police to find out more about projects run in and around Chesterfield to keep young people entertained and out of trouble.

David Coleman spent a day at Chesterfield police station talking to officers and staff from partnership agencies who work with young people in the area.

He spent time learning about a boxing project, the Extreme Wheels sports project and The Kes project, which involves young people with poor attendance at school and showing signs of getting involved with anti-social behaviour working alongside a birds of prey expert.

Chief Superintendent Debbie Mathews, who is in charge of policing in Chesterfield, said: “Mr Coleman was interested to hear about the many different projects and organisations our officers work with to help try and divert youngsters into positive activities and away from anti-social or nuisance behaviour.”
