Neil Armsworth Inspector

I am the Neighbourhood Beat Inspector for North Shields.

I am pleased to be in charge of the Neighbourhood Policing Team for this area of North Tyneside. Neighbourhood officers are an important part of providing a local policing service tailored to the needs of the community. 

I work closely with local residents, businesses and partners to listen to their concerns and deliver the best possible policing service which responds to the needs of local people.

As Neighbourhood Inspector I am responsible for improving the quality of life for residents by reducing crime and disorder.

Assisting me in achieving this are my teams of officers which include:

  • Shift patrol officers who cover 24 hours a day

  • Neighbourhood Sergeants and Constables

  • Neighbourhood Detectives

  • PCSOs

  • Special Constables

Where necessary and in order to police specific events or problems I also have access to specialist units including the Area Support Group, Motor Patrols and the Horse and Dog sections.

Much of our work involves long term problem solving where, together with partners in the Local Authority and other Agencies, we target crime and disorder hotspots and also address issues such as anti-social behaviour, underage drinking and graffiti.
