More than 250 Derbyshire police officers will be deployed in London in the run up to and during the Olympic Games.

Derbyshire Constabulary has been working with national colleagues to help resource what will be the largest ever pre-planned policing operation, while also ensuring that core policing for our communities continues.

The force will support the operation by providing officers to assist for a total of 101 days.

Final planning for their deployments is underway with the majority of officers set to assist the Metropolitan Police.
