Inspector Darren Griffiths
I am Darren Griffiths, in July 2013 I took over the
responsibility as the Neighbourhood Inspector for the Chester Inner
area. I am responsible for all aspects of policing in Chester City
Centre, Boughton, Newtown, the Garden Quarter and Sealand Road
shopping and industrial areas.
I have an extensive background in Neighbourhood Policing and
have a good understanding of partnership working. I install a
strong ethical believe in listening to our communities and engaging
with the public in order to improve the service we deliver.
I have carried out a wide range of roles during my time as a
police officer including: CID, Incident Management, Neighbourhood
policing and more recently Integrated Offender Management.
Along with my dedicated and enthusiastic team of officers, we
will continue to pro-actively tackle crime and disorder, have a
robust attitude to anti-social behaviour, and it’s imperative that
we continue to support our local communities in order that they
feel safe in the community and comfortable in contacting the police
when they are in need of assistance.
My key priorities for this area are:
- To ensure we provide the best possible levels of visibility of
police and community support officers in the area.
- To work closely with partners and community groups to provide a
multi-agency approach to long term problem solving.
- Engage, listen and work with residents and the business
community to address issues raised in order to improve their
quality of life.
- Develop public confidence in the service we deliver.

area is sub-divided into the five geographic areas of Chester city
centre, Boughton, College Ward, Newtown and the Greyhound
Industrial Parks. It is an extremely diverse area that includes the
prestigious world heritage status city centre, along with three
very separate and differing residential areas, and an ever-
increasing spread of industrial and retail premises on the out of
