Sgt. Clarke said: “I really enjoy working in uniformed roles, as not only do I never have to decide what to wear every day, but I enjoy engaging with the public and being out on the streets providing reassurance to the community.

“I’m a keen runner and cyclist, and I hope to get out on patrols on the police bike as often as I can.

“My aim is to continue to make Chesterfield a safe and pleasant place to visit, work and live by engaging with partner agencies to tackle violent crime, theft, drug abuse and anti-social behaviour.”
