With 2022 drawing to a close, we’re reflecting on the successful work of our officers and staff who continue to work hard to protect the East Midlands communities from harm.
Our collaboration of the five police forces (Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire) is committed to tackling the most serious, organised and violent crime, countering terrorism and extremism and providing forensic services on behalf of the region.
This year, as always, each unit has done everything they can to stop the most dangerous people from operating in the region, and their hard work has seen criminals being sent to prison for over 1,520 years.
Regional Deputy Chief Constable Paul Gibson said: “This year has been extremely busy, and one I look back on with an immense sense of achievement and pride. Our teams have faced some difficult cases, and have dealt with them with such professionalism and dedication, with the victim at the heart of everything they do.
“I am so proud to lead EMSOU and the expertise and resilience of staff and officers from all five forces who come together to protect the East Midlands.
“In 2023, we will continue to work with our colleagues to find new ways to keep people safe, and bring those responsible for the most serious and organised crimes to justice.”
This short video highlights the achievements of our Major Crime team, Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU), case review unit, Forensic Services, and our counter-terrorism team over the last 12 months.
Wishing you a safe and happy new year for 2023.
