"I will make sure I'm able to assist with the manifesto commitments and crime plan that will be published by the commissioner.
"As part of my work in the probation service as a practitioner and manager, I have vast experience of working with all kinds of offenders."
Police and crime commissioner Alan Charles, announcing his intention to appoint Mr Dhindsa, said: "We had a great deal of interest in the role and we interviewed six candidates, all of whom were of a high calibre.
"I would like to congratulate Hardyal on his successful application.
"The role of police and crime commissioner is a big one, with a wide range of responsibilities, and I was seeking someone who would help me deliver on my election pledges and support me in my work. I believe we have found that person."
The proposed appointment will now go forward to the Derbyshire Police and Crime Panel, which meets today, for a confirmation hearing.
