Chief Inspector Simon Newell
It is a real privilege to be the Chief Inspector for Crewe Local Policing Unit (LPU). I am responsible for leading the delivery of local policing to the communities of Crewe, Nantwich, Sandbach, Holmes Chapel, Alsager and Middlewich along with the surrounding areas of East Cheshire.
I joined Cheshire Constabulary in 1999 and have worked in numerous uniformed, CID and strategic roles across the Force providing me with a broad range of policing experience to deliver the best possible service to the public of Cheshire.
I lead a dedicated and professional team, supported by Inspector Kate Buckingham, Inspector John Forshaw and Detective Inspector Claire Jesson who are proud to serve this area and together we are committed to delivering a high quality policing service for your community.
Policing Crewe LPU holds significant challenges owing to the current climate of austerity, the large geographic area we cover and the diverse range of communities we serve, but I can assure you that it is the community that lies at the heart of everything we do.
My priorities are to work closely with partners and stakeholders to target and reduce vulnerability; to proactively tackle crime and anti-social behaviour; to bring those to justice who cause the most harm; to further improve community cohesion through effective engagement; and to be transparent in our decision making and use of police powers, promoting the legitimacy of our actions to enhance public confidence in local policing.
I am also the Force lead for dementia and the Herbert Protocol, so will be seeking to make Cheshire Constabulary a Dementia Friendly organisation and will be working alongside multi-agency partners and local community groups to develop Dementia Friendly Communities.Meet the Policing Unit team
