Community Police

Derbyshire Constabulary Badge

My name is Andy Crosthwaite and I am the local beat officer for Whaley Bridge/Furness Vale. I have been a police officer for about 10 years, having worked previously at New Mills, Chapel, Ashbourne and Buxton police stations.
I shall be spending as much time as I can in Whaley Bridge along with my colleague, Community Support Officer Tracy Jones and we look forward to meeting and being involved with all aspects of the community.
I am married to a fellow police officer and have two children. When not working I enjoy family life and following Derby County football club. Don't hold that against me though, as for some strange reason, there seems to be a lot of folk who follow teams from somewhere called Manchester!
To request police attendance at incidents, please contact 0345 123 33 33 or in an emergency dial 999.
Should you wish to speak with me, or CSO Jones, regarding non urgent issues, please leave a message on 0345 123 33 33 or at
