A NEW inspector is taking the lead on policing in Clay Cross and north east Derbyshire.
Insp Glenn Hoggard has taken over from Michelle Shooter, who has been promoted to Chief Inspector and is now working in the Derby area.
He said: “I am really pleased to be taking over the position. Overall crime in the area has been reducing year on year and my aim is to continue this good work and keep our area a safe place to live.
“I see the assistance of the community as vital in this work and so my focus will be to continue to build public confidence in local policing.”
Insp Hoggard, a police officer for more than 17 years, will be overseeing policing in Clay Cross, Dronfield, Eckington, Killamarsh and other communities in the north east Derbyshire district.
