Inspector Christian Watkins

I am Inspector Christian Watkins and currently head up Crewe Neighbourhood Policing Unit which is responsible for policing the areas of Crewe, Haslington and Shavington.

I joined the Constabulary in 1998 and have undertaken a number of varied roles that have provided the valuable experience needed to lead and direct the policing of this area to deliver an efficient and reassuring service to our communities.

Raised in Northwich, I began my career policing the towns of Northwich and Winsford, before working in a number of strategic roles based at Police Headquarters prior to promotion to Sergeant in 2005. From that point I have been based in the Eastern area of the county and undertaken the role of custody sergeant, response, and community team sergeant at Crewe prior to temporary promotion to Inspector in early 2013.

It is my belief that our communities feel safe and reassured by a visible policing presence on our streets and neighbourhoods. All my officers and PCSOs are keen to integrate within the community and make themselves accessible to responding to concerns from local residents and doing all they can to ensure that Crewe residents enjoy a good quality of life without fear of violence and crime, and that anti-social behaviour is dealt with appropriately and we do all we can to prevent individuals becoming repeat victims of crime.

Experience tells us that making people safe and feeling safe is all about local officers tackling local issues. Over the past five years that approach has driven down crime and disorder year-on-year, and we believe people’s confidence in the work we and our partner agencies do together helps to make Crewe a better place to live, work and visit.
