Inspector Jon Papworth

My teams and I are passionate about protecting the vulnerable, reducing crime and disorder, and working in partnership with the community and partner agencies to identify and resolve concerns as quickly as possible.

We hold regular Safer Neighbourhood Action Panel meetings in each town for local residents to raise any concerns they would like addressing by their local policing team and partner agencies.

How to contact us

Every Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) area is covered by SNT patrol officers who will respond to calls for service 24 hours a day, investigate crimes in the area and work with their beat managers and engagement officers to deliver local priorities.
