Inspector Darren Griffiths

Darren GriffithsI 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:

  1. To ensure we provide the best possible levels of visibility of police and community support officers in the area.
  2. To work closely with partners and community groups to provide a multi-agency approach to long term problem solving.
  3. Engage, listen and work with residents and the business community to address issues raised in order to improve their quality of life.
  4. Develop public confidence in the service we deliver.

Chester Inner Neighbourhood Policing Team provides local policing services for the historic Roman City of Chester. The city 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 town retail parks.
