Lee Donnelly

Inspector Lee Donnelly

I am Inspector Lee Donnelly and I have recently been given the exciting opportunity to lead your local Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT). Having grown up in the area myself, I feel proud to now return in this privileged position. During my 18 years as a GMP officer, I have acquired a great deal of knowledge and worked in a number of uniformed and specialist roles within the organisation. I will be drawing on this knowledge and looking to adapt this for the benefit of the community. here to read more
