What you could be doing | Corporate Services
We work to ensure the various parts of the force are working together effectively
Working in Corporate Services
Corporate Services is responsible for many of the functions that evaluate, direct and support the force’s strategic direction and operational delivery. Working closely with the Executive Team, Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service, the Office for the Police and Crime Commissioner and Communications and Engagement, we provide information and analysis of force performance and future trends.
We also work at a strategic level to ensure the various parts of the force are working together effectively. Crucially, we allow people to be individuals and express themselves and, despite the serious nature of what we deal with, we also have fun!
To work here you have to be friendly, outgoing, able to work as part of a team and happy to assist anyone. You also need to be flexible, be able to think ‘outside the box’ and willing to take personal responsibility to achieve our goals.
This is a dynamic and varied work environment where no two days are ever the same and we all work together to keep the people of Derbyshire safe. We’re also a friendly team that supports each individual to achieve their ambitions. Some roles require certain qualifications but due to the varied nature of the individual sections within the department, training is provided on an individual needs basis.
Our Corporate Services teams
CITIZENS IN POLICING
Citizens in Policing is the overarching term for all of the volunteers who give up their time freely to support Derbyshire Constabulary, including our special constables, police support volunteers and police cadets. Volunteers increase capacity, bring valuable skills and expertise to our divisions and departments and help create closer, more effective connections with our communities.
EQUALITY AND INCLUSION
The Equality and Inclusion team helps the force to build a capable and diverse workforce reflective of our communities and meet our legal obligations under Equality Act 2010. They’re also responsible for upskilling the workforce in terms of social and equality awareness.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
The Health and Safety team is responsible for ensuring there’s an effective framework in place to identify and manage risk in order to minimise unnecessary loss, disruption, damage, injury and incidence of ill health - all of which impact on our ability to deliver services effectively, the safety of staff, visitors and ultimately, our reputation.
LOCATIONS, MAPPING AND RTC VALIDATIONS
This team supports operational policing by providing mapping and address services to the force, as well as ensuring appropriate systems are kept updated regarding changes to locations and addresses.
As well as producing detailed management information to inform operational and organisational evidence based decision-making, Performance Management are also responsible for statutory statistical returns to a number of external bodies.

Ranjit Singh Dol, Chief Inspector: Lead for Inclusion and Deputy Head of Corporate Services
I joined Derbyshire Constabulary as a regular constable in 2001. The diverse nature of the work has allowed me to push myself in new directions, experience a variety of roles and receive world-class training. The force has taught me life skills and exposed me to situations that have helped me to better understand myself. For example - working as a hostage negotiator and supporting people who have found themselves in crisis. It’s given me great satisfaction. Being part of Derbyshire constabulary gives me a real sense of belonging. It also provides me with a platform to serve my communities and give a voice to those who perhaps cannot be heard.
Investing in your development
We know that to protect and support our community effectively we need to keep up-to-date with new approaches, processes and technologies. This means that there will always be opportunities for training and professional development. We’ll continuously review your training needs and help succeed in your role. We’ll challenge you to work outside your comfort zone. And we’ll encourage you to grow.
As well as professional training and a range of in-house training opportunities, you can also look forward to plenty of personal support. This might be from your colleagues in the team, new opportunities that become available or through membership of one of our many staff associations.
