Derbyshire Constabulary

Derbyshire Constabulary, in partnership with Council Emergency Planners, are keen to engage with and support businesses on Pride Park by briefing you local information and helping you to identify risks and threats to your business.

Operation Rackan – Business Continuity

Derbyshire Constabulary are hosting a business continuity event called ‘Operation Rackan’ on Tuesday, July 14, between 9:30am and 12:30pm.

This is an opportunity to better understand the hazards and threats that lead to serious emergencies, how the emergency services will respond and how you can be better prepared. We will also simulate a thought provoking major incident to help you assess “how prepared are you.”

The event is being held at the Roundhouse College, Roundhouse Road, Pride Park, Derby DE248JE.

Places are on a first come, first served basis. To register for the FREE EVENT please email Julie Coulton at

Sgt Simon Hawley and PC Gemma Perry – Local Policing Team

Derbyshire Constabulary have Safer Neighbourhood teams (SNTs) covering the entirety of Derbyshire, and Pride Park is covered by the Alvaston team. Sgt Hawley and PC Perry can help with any local enquires you may have, and all the contact details, local news, area priorities and events listings can be found on our website.

SNTs can also support you through the Derbyshire Alert system. This is a free community messaging service that sends safety messages to you quickly and effectively.

Alerts are mainly sent by e-mail but people can also choose to receive them via text or a voice message.

It is designed so users who sign up to the system can choose what types of information they receive and when; concerning local crime, crime prevention, community events and good news to the public.

Contact for further information.

Nick Elliott and Rob Brittan – Emergency Planning Team

Derbyshire’s Emergency Planning Team are based at Matlock and deal with a range of emergencies – major to minor – throughout the county.

They prepare contingency plans as well as organising and delivering training to many organisations to help them plan and respond to emergencies.

“Nearly 1 in 5 businesses suffer a major disruption every year – how prepared are you?”

Council Emergency Planners will let you know how agencies respond to major emergencies and what the implications could be for your business.
