Police Launches Local Policing With Communities At It’s Heart

Staffordshire Police has aunched its new local policing model for the county, which brings significant investment in the number of officers responding locally throughout Stoke-on-Trent.   

Designed to strengthen the force’s focus on local policing and partnerships, the new model sees emergency response officers operate from 10 local areas alongside neighbourhood officers and Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs).

Stoke North has a dedicated local policing team (LPT), which covers Hanley, Burslem, Tunstall and the surrounding areas, with a dedicated Chief Inspector and Inspector. They are:

  • Chief Inspector Simon Brownsword
  • Inspector Hayley Eaton.

Announced in February 2022 by the newly appointed Chief Constable, Chris Noble, the changes have been made to enable officers to respond quicker to emergencies; develop enhanced local knowledge in order to solve problems; have more time to investigate and provide a high-quality, consistent and caring service for victims of crime.

The changes also support the force’s policing priorities for the next 12-18 months and the commitments set out in the Police and Crime Plan published by Staffordshire Commissioner for Police, Fire & Rescue and Crime, Ben Adams.

Chief Inspector Simon Brownsword, of the Stoke North Local Policing Team, said: “We’ve worked with communities, partners and colleagues across the force to design a model that will allow us to focus on the issues that matter the most to people in Stoke-on-Trent, and respond in the way they need us to. This could be in emergency situations, working with partners to tackle the root causes of anti-social behaviour and criminality, or protecting the most vulnerable.”
