Inspector Paul Loughlin

Inspector Paul LoughlinI am Inspector Paul Loughlin. I have the responsibility for the Neighbourhood Policing Team in Northwich.

The majority of my policing career has been spent in the CID as a Detective Constable and Detective Sergeant.

In 2007 I joined the Northwich Neighbourhood Policing Team as a Sergeant. I later worked on secondment to Vale Royal Borough Council, leading on tackling anti-social behaviour in Vale Royal.

Northwich Neighbourhood Policing Team has well established working arrangements with our local partners. In particular we work closely with the multi agency Anti-Social Behaviour unit to address crime and anti-social behaviour issues across Northwich.

The Neighbourhood Policing Team would like to encourage members of the community to tell us what they know about issues in their areas, to enable us to take pro-active steps to tackle them.

The Neighbourhood Policing Team Officers hold regular meetings in their beat areas. I would like to encourage people to take these opportunities to shape how we provide a quality and relevant police service to the people of Northwich.

We aim to ensure everyone is safe, and feels safe.
