Villages will see new PC

THERE is a new Bobby on the beat in Somercotes and Swanwick.

PC Chris Anthony has joined the villages’ Safer Neighbourhood policing team.

He first joined Derbyshire Constabulary five years ago as a patrol constable and has spent the majority of his service on front-line response.

The first three years of his career were spent at Bolsover as a patrol officer before he moved to Alfreton section in 2010.

Chris said: “Each village within the county has its own issues and I intend to work with the community to help tackle these at a local level.”
