    August 2018.

    Welcome to the Stafford Local Policing Team, I am Chief Inspector Gemma Ward, Commander for Stafford Local Policing Team (LPT).

    Stafford Borough Neighbourhood Policing Team is led by Chief Inspector Gemma Ward and covers a wide geographical area of over 230 square miles. Many diverse communities live and work in the Borough which encompasses suburban towns and business districts with vast expanses of rural and faming land. Three recently re-structured Neighbourhood Policing Teams have ownership of policing, community engagement, crime prevention and problem solving for geographical areas which align with local authority wards and these teams comprise of a Sergeant, Police Constables, Police Community Support Officers and Special Constables and Sergeants. Stafford Borough also have a highly impactive Neighbourhood Support Team who tackle those issues causing the most concern in communities and take on more complex investigations with the support of Investigative Officers.
    The Deputy Neighbourhood Commander is Sgt Nick Maingay, who has vast experience of partnership working and dealing with vulnerability-related issues. The Neighbourhood Team have an extremely strong working relationship with Stafford Borough Council and other local partners, and meets weekly with all partners to address issues and problem solve using all of the tools and experience that multi-agency teams can offer.
    Stafford Borough is currently running Operation Curie which tackles bike theft in the area with proactive arrests, searches, seizures and related investigations. The local community are extremely passionate about this matter and public support for the operation is gratefully received, with intelligence that officers can act upon be submitted daily. Many arrests and have been made with repeat offenders being charged and put before the Courts.
    Throughout the first half of 2018, Stafford Borough saw an increase in crime that is in line with force wide, regional and national increases – around acquisitive crime in particular. The team are keen to share frequent and relevant crime prevention advice around the security of homes, vehicles and bikes and are running several public events over the summer to support our fight against acquisitive crime. The first is a bike frame-marking event on 25th August, followed by an event to reunite bikes recovered and suspected to be stolen with their rightful owners. Anti-social behaviour has been reduced by 7% in the last 12 months, with the team working hard with local partners to ensure that diversionary activity and visible policing presence is in place over the school summer holidays.
    Stafford Borough will be hosting an online surgery for residents in the Stafford Borough on Thursday 20th September.  This will be your opportunity to chat to local officers about any issues or concerns you may have in your community.  The chat will go ‘live’ at 7pm – so make sure you check back here then to join the chat and help shape local policing in your area.

  • Click Here for more information on how visibility is calculated

    The visuals display the time officers spend visible in their communities.

    This data collection is from the officer’s personal handheld radio which sends an update every 5 minutes from booking on shift to booking off shift, so each reading received from the device is classed as 5 minutes visibility.

    Readings can only be taken when the officer is away from the Police Station as the areas are geo-fenced not to record updates when the officer is in the station.

    Standard policing duties where the officer is away from the Police Station such as being located at Custody Suites etc. are not counted in the visibility figures.
