Police Officer Information for Abbey

NameRankBio
Mark Chappell Inspector

I'm Mark Chappell and I am temporarily responsible for Local Policing in Redditch.

I have nearly 22 years of experience and have enjoyed numerous roles including pro-active and Intelligence Policing work.

Leading the Redditch Neighbourhood teams I look forward to working with local partners to tackle issues for the local community, targeting crime and antisocial behaviour and those who cause the most harm.

It's important that your Local Neighbourhood teams listen to local concerns and use information from local people to understand and support the residents and visitors to Redditch to provide policing for the local community.
