I am Sergeant 1611 Mark Church and I have responsibility for this Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team.

I have been a police officer since 1994, and was promoted to a Sergeant in 2000. I've worked mostly on the response teams throughout the area, helping me to understand the problems that affect our local communities, and became a Safer Neighbourhood Sergeant in 2013. My priorities are to engage and to listen to your concerns and target issues that are important in making sure your local area is a safe and pleasant place to live, work and visit.

Our aim to provide a reassuring presence to offer the highest levels of customer service from your local neighbourhood officers.
