Information about the Police and Crime Commissioner

Hardyal Dhindsa

I have lived in Derby and Derbyshire since 1967 when I arrived from Punjab in India.  I am married with three grown up sons.

I graduated with a degree in Psychology from Bangor University, North Wales and worked as an Assistant Psychologist in the NHS.  I qualified as a Social Worker from the London School of Economics in 1985 and have 30 years’ experience as a Probation Officer, Practitioner and Strategic Manager in a Criminal Justice Agency, overseeing a £22million budget and 500 personnel. 

During this time I had a two year secondment as Deputy Director to the Nottingham Crime and Drugs Partnership to combat the negative social and criminal impact of drugs and alcohol abuse; prioritising community safety and reducing crime. 

My background in probation enables me to understand that offenders have to be punished and apprehended for their crimes as well as helped to be rehabilitated and re-integrated back into their communities and neighbourhoods.

I have been a senior elected Labour member of Derby City Council; holding key Cabinet posts for over 20 years.
