Belper and the surrounding villages have a new bobby on the beat.

PC Andrea Smith has joined the Duffield, Belper rural and Holloway team and the Quarndon and Kirk Langley beat.

Andrea takes over from PC Dave Chambers, who has recently retired.

PC Smith is also a member of the Heage, Nether Heage and Ambergate team.

She said: “This is an exciting new venture for me.

“I am looking forward to getting to know the local communities and working alongside my colleagues, residents and key partner agencies to tackle issues that matter.

“I would encourage anyone who sees me out and about to come and say hello and have a chat about any local concerns they may have.”
