Toby’s Taste of Life on the Beat










Shoplifting, a break in and a missing person were just some of the incidents on the agenda for Toby Perkins MP as he joined Chesterfield Police for a day on the beat.

Toby said “It’s eye-opening to see what the officers go through day-to-day. It reinforces the admiration you already have for the police, seeing them throwing themselves into harm’s way for the safety of the community. Myself and other MPs debate issues on crime and police in Parliament frequently so it’s important I have a strong sense of what the town’s officers are dealing with.”

Chief Superintendent Rachel Osborne, of Derbyshire Police said “It was good to meet with Mr Perkins and talk to him about policing issues and challenges for Chesterfield and the work we are doing to tackle crime. As well as meeting with senior officers, he had the opportunity to spend time with frontline officers on patrol and to experience first-hand the variety of issues and work that they do on a day to day basis.”
