Derbyshire Constabulary is the only force in the country to hold an award for work with the deaf and hard of hearing community and employees.

The force passed a self-assessment which entitles them to keep the ‘Louder than Words’ charter from Action on Hearing Loss.

Chief Constable Mick Creddon said: “Derbyshire has the highest number of deaf and hard of hearing people in the country proportionate to the population, this is why keeping this charter for another year is so important.

“I am delighted that we have maintained it.”
