Chief Inspector Laura Marler
I joined the police in 1998 and served in Greater Manchester Police until December 2017 when I transferred to Cheshire. I have worked in numerous departments including Uniform, CID, Plain clothes burglary, robbery and assault crime teams. I have worked in partnership with other organisations as part of several policing roles in GMP. This is where my passion lies in policing, as I really enjoy building new relationships and being part of partnership work initiatives. I have now taken over as the Chief Inspector responsible for Macclesfield Local Policing Unit and I am looking forward to the new challenge.
My priority is to provide a quality local policing service; for us to be there when people need us most. I am keen to make sure all my staff strive to do their best and learn and develop as they become more experienced in policing. This is key to a team who are keen, enthusiastic and committed to provide the best quality service to the communities we serve. 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.
Great partnership working and strong relationships with both internal and external partners is so important to provide the best service which is quite rightly expected from the community. This is key to neighbourhood policing because better relationships build trust and confidence and in turn , help us to gather information about what’s happening in communities, enabling us to tackle issues quickly and effectively. Working with communities 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.
I am looking forward to working with the team, partner agencies and community groups, as well as meeting those in the communities we help and support.
