New head of CID

A NEW Detective Chief Inspector has been appointed to serve the High Peak and Derbyshire Dales.

DCI Gareth Meadows joined Derbyshire Constabulary in March 2007 and has spent the last two years as Glossop section inspector.

In his new role, he will be in charge of CID in Bakewell, Buxton, Chapel-en-le-Frith and Glossop.

He said: “I will work hard to ensure that crime levels in our area continue to stay low, that our investigations are thorough and that we help to look after and protect those in need.”

DCI Meadows replaces Tracy Lewis, who has moved to the force’s Intelligence Bureau at headquarters, Ripley.
