On The Beat: Moving on

This is my final time writing for South Leeds Life as just before Christmas I received the exciting news that I was successful in my promotion application and I have recently been promoted to Chief Inspector.

I am very fortunate that I have been retained at Leeds and now have responsibility for the Operations portfolio.

Whilst this is exciting news, I am sad to have left my role as South Leeds Neighbourhood Policing Inspector, having loved working in this area with a fantastic group of police officers and staff as well as members of the community and partners.

The passion from the communities and partners to improve people’s lives and make South Leeds the best place to live is like no other area I have ever worked in and I will leave with very fond memories.

There have been some significant challenges, especially over the past couple of years, but I am very proud of what the communities and the partnerships working in this area have achieved together to keep people safe and invest in the communities of South Leeds.

In order to continue the good work in this area, I am pleased to also be able to update you that Insp Tom Perry has taken over my role. Insp Perry is an experienced Inspector who I know is very much looking forward to working with you all and will be a fresh pair of eyes to drive policing forwards in your area.

Finally, I would like to thank you for the support that you have given me as well as the South Leeds NPT in the nearly three years I have been in post.

I wish you all the best for the future.
