Police Officer Information for Fairfield

NameRankBio
Andrew Crosthwaite PC
Denis Murphy Sergeant

I am Sergeant 3320 Denis Murphy and I have responsibility for this Safer Neighbourhood team.

I have been a police officer for a total of 26 years, covering a wide range of roles in three parts of the country - the Metropolitan Police, South Yorkshire and Derbyshire. In that time, I have been a patrol bobby, part of Safer Neighbourhood teams and a support Sergeant based at Matlock.

After moving to Derbyshire Constabulary in 2007, I have served in Chesterfield, Matlock, Ashbourne and now Buxton Central Section, covering Buxton, Chapel, Whaley Bridge, Hope Valley and surrounding villages.

I'm thrilled to be given the chance to lead the B Central Safer Neighbourhood teams and am looking forward to tackling the issues that matter most to local people.

I am particularly interested in fostering working partnerships with community and faith groups in the area, to improve how we work together to make our communities safer places to live, work and visit.
