    August 2018.

    Hello and welcome to Stoke on Trent (North) Neighbourhood Policing Team. I am Chief Inspector John Owen the Stoke North Police Commander.
    Stoke on Trent has changed significantly within the new policing model, and whilst previously there had been three Neighbourhood Policing Teams (NPT) there are now only two. Please view our website to see the specific boundaries, but keeping it simple it, it is everything from the top of Shelton Park upwards that sits within out NPT. The new model is very much based on partnership working and getting to the root causes of issues which will hopefully result in few victims of crime. Also, working in partnership ensures that the right agency is doing the right thing at the right time.
    Within the new model I have inherited Hanley City Centre within my NPT. This has been a real privilege being the local commander for the centre of a city that I was born in, grew up in and still live in. I am extremely proud of being from Stoke on Trent, and we have a real duty to talk up our great city at every opportunity.
    As you are aware, we have now moved to the force’s new operating model. This means that you will have a dedicated Police Constable, PCSOs and a Sgt who will be responsible for problem solving issues in your area, whether that is crime or antisocial behaviour. Please look at Staffordshire Police’s Website for details of who your officers are. However, please continue to report non urgent issues on 101 and emergency issues on 999. To support the new model officers will be holding “week of actions” in your area. This is not because we see these as the answer, or that they will resolve all of the issues. However, this is a good opportunity for you to meet us and partners who are regularly working together around community safety. It is also an opportunity for you to have your say as to what problems you are experiencing and how we can work together to resolve them.
    We recognise the importance of engagement and as well as attending community meetings, public events and various other opportunities we are also carrying out on-line surgeries. This is never a replacement for face to face contact, but it is another medium to hear your concerns.
    As we enter the latter part of the summer the Local Policing team will be joining a force wide initiative to raise awareness of knife crime. Stoke on Trent is not immune from the effects of knife crime, the effects of which can be devastating for victims, families and communities. Therefore, I ask that if you know anyone who is carrying a knife, report it confidentially before someone gets seriously injured and if you are a parent, ask yourself, do you know what your child has in their pockets when they leave the house?

    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.
