Newcastle Borough Policing Chief

It was a pleasure to meet with the new Policing Commander of Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Policing Team, Phil Duffy. He oversees Kidsgrove and Talke.

It was great to walk around Clough Hall Park and hear from Phil that no incidents of anti-social behaviour (ASB) have been reported in the last 3 months.

I am pleased he thinks my plan to upgrade CCTV, which I have written to Kidsgrove Town Council & Newcastle Borough Council to deliver after receiving public support, will aide them with any issues.

Phil is the lead on ASB for Staffordshire Police and I look forward to working with him to ensure we further reduce incidents.

I also raised concerns over the response to 101 calls which Phil will look into
