Joint enforcement hub for Derby

Share this post:

A multiagency enforcement hub is to be created at a Connect Derby property in the city thanks to a partnership between Derbyshire Constabulary, the Police and Crime Commissioner, Derby City Council and the University of Derby.

As part of robust action to tackle crime and antisocial behaviour, a joint base will be established at Riverside Chambers, the former magistrates’ court building in Full Street, which is now a managed workspace.

The final touches are underway on the building and it is hoped police teams will be ready to move in early this summer.

The hub will accommodate 25 officers, including the City Safer Neighbourhood Team, Special Constables and Police Cadets as well as officers from Derby City Council.

It will also provide a base for those embarking on Police Constable Degree Apprenticeships (PCDA), as well as Policing and Criminology students from the university, to encourage collaborative work across the city.

Chief Superintendent Dave Cox, who leads policing in the city, said: “The new hub is a fantastic asset to help keep the residents and visitors safe in Derby.”
