Hayley Anderson CSO

I am a Police Community Support Officer on the East Shields Neighbourhood Policing Team.

Police Community Support Officers are a friendly familiar sight and work closely with the Neighbourhood Beat Managers, forming an integral part of the Neighbourhood Policing Team.  We attend the same briefings as regular police officers and often carry out joint operations with them.

Along with my colleagues, I can be seen patrolling in and around the Harton Nook, Harton and The Wedge areas. My main role is to provide public reassurance to the local community and I do this by providing high visibility patrols focusing on low level crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour.

If you see me in your area, stop and introduce yourself.  You can contact me with any local issues by calling 101 extension 69191 or use the ‘Contact Me’ link on this page.

John Smith Inspector

I am the Neighbourhood Inspector for East Shields, Boldon, Cleadon and Whitburn.The sector covers large rural areas and areas of high density housing, a leisure centre and a large open expanse.

I began my career with Northumbria Police in 1989, working from Boldon Police Station.

I am delighted to return to work in the area where my career began.

I lead a team of people consisting of two Neighbourhood Policing Teams, each led by a Sergeant, which include Neighbourhood Beat Managers and Police Community Support Officers. These teams, supported closely by other resources within Northumbria Police work hard to ensure that long term solutions are found to resolve matters that you have identified as your local policing priorities.

These are YOUR Neighbourhood Policing Teams and I encourage you to let us know what is happening where you live so that we may effectively target those individuals who commit crime and anti-social behaviour. If you prefer, this can be done in the strictest of confidence. You could also attend one of our regular Partners and Communities Together (PACT) meetings which are publicised on our web page.
