Recent figures show that crime in Derbyshire has fallen by 21% since 2010, but that there are still increases in weapon procession and drug-related offences.
The summit was organised by Richard Bright who is the Conservative candidate for Derbyshire in May’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) election.
He said that despite the positive figures it was essential that the visibility of police is maintained.
He said: “I am glad crime overall has dropped by more than a quarter under this Government, but we still need to do more to tackle some types of crime in Derbyshire.

“The summit was an excellent way to get people round the table and come up with a plan to crack down on increases in drug and weapon offences.
“Our view was that an increased visibility of policing is needed and if given the honour of becoming Derbyshire’s next PCC I will take this forward.
“For example I want to encourage more people to join up and become special constables who offered their time voluntarily but have the same power as regular officers.”
The MPs who attended were Pauline Latham, Heather Wheeler, Nigel Mills, Amanda Solloway, Andrew Bingham and Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin.
