Chief Inspector Rob Dickinson

I joined the police in 1992 and served in Merseyside until 1999 when I transferred to Cheshire. I have worked in numerous departments including Uniform, CID, Roads Policing and Custody as well as Training and the Force Control Centre. I am now the Chief Inspector responsible for Macclesfield Local Policing Unit.

My priority is to provide a quality local policing service; for us to be there when people need us most. When someone needs our help I want our team to be there promptly, ensuring we do our very best to meet their individual needs. In order to prevent and investigate crime and anti-social behaviour, it is paramount we understand the problems and use the tactical options available to address them.

Engaging with communities in Macclesfield is key to neighbourhood policing. There is no doubt that the more people see of us in everyday life the better they feel. When done correctly this works to create a virtuous cycle where this familiarity increases communication, promotes trust, gives us more accurate information to work with and improves the way we respond which ultimately provides a better service and leads back to further engagement.

It is vital that we as Police Officers treat people openly and fairly. It is really important people see the legitimacy in our actions as it is a big driver in gaining public confidence.
