I am Mark Lewis and I am the neighbourhood Inspector for Werneth and Coldhurst. On behalf of my team, welcome to our web site. Here you can find out which officers cover your area and make contact with us directly to report any concerns. I am proud to lead YOUR local neighbourhood team. I say your because we are here for you. Each officer is dedicated, enthusiastic and has a commitment to tackle issues that affect you, your families and friends as you live and work within the community. We can only act on what we are told, so I encourage you to tell us what’s going on, be it in person at one of our regular surgeries or via e mail or telephone. It’s my ambition that we are as visible as possible so don’t feel you can’t stop us in the street!
In an emergency, when a crime is happening right then or life and property is at risk always dial 999. If it’s not an emergency please use the 101 number and stop to think- is the police the best service for you regarding this matter? Did you know 58% of 999 calls to the Police are not an emergency and could be addressed by other means of contact with the Police or partner agencies?
As a new officer to the Oldham area I look forward to meeting you.
