I am Inspector Steve Jameson, and I am delighted to have been given responsibility for the Neighbourhood policing team in the Middleton area.
In nearly twenty years of policing, I have worked in both Response and Neighbourhood roles in the Moss Side and Rochdale areas, and I have recently returned to the Rochdale borough after seven years in the Specialist Protective Services branch. I have always preferred frontline roles and I am looking forward to this new challenge.
Middleton is an area which is very important to me – I grew up here, and I feel a strong connection to the town. Needless to say, that when I knew that I would be returning to the division, I asked to be placed here.
In my previous role, I worked closely with partners at Manchester Airport to bring about reductions in Anti-Social Behaviour and target those who caused distress to others. I see exactly the same need to work with partner agencies here at Middleton, to deliver the best possible service and make it a safer place for all who live or work here.
I am fortunate to have inherited an excellent team, who share my passion for delivering first class service and are dedicated to the area. I have already seen some fantastic pro-active work from them, but also the links that they have forged with our local community. Many of them will already be known to you, as they have been in post for some time.
I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible. Our Township Committee meetings are advertised on our GMP Middleton Facebook page, or we can be contacted via the contact details on this website.
