Ripley Force Headquarters

Our Derbyshire Constabulary headquarters are based in Ripley. The Headquarters site consists of seven buildings, home to hundreds of staff and officers. The principal building houses our main Contact Management Centre and our call handlers and operators. Various other police staff teams are based here including Criminal Justice, Finance and Business Support and Human Resources. It’s also where you can find the offices of the Police and Crime Commissioner and the force’s executive team.

Other buildings on the site act as the base for various teams such as Crime Support, Public Protection, Cyber Investigations, the Child Exploitation Unit and Organisational Learning, Culture and Ethics. You’ll also find our Training Centre, where we train our PCs, Specials, PCSOs, DSIs and CDOs. Across the site we have multiple meeting rooms, kitchens, a canteen and our multi-purpose hall that contains a gym and shower facilities.

Working in Derbyshire

Sharing borders with Manchester, Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Staffordshire and Cheshire, Derbyshire is the most central county in the UK. Containing the Peak District National Park and a part of the National Forest, it is a county of countryside.

There are plenty of opportunities to get out into nature, but there is also the opportunity to live the café lifestyle in our towns or experience the buzz of city life. So you could easily find yourself working in the rural reaches of the Peak District National Park, or in the vibrant life of a multicultural city.
