Redditch South West and Rural neighbourhood policing team

Inspector Mark Chappell

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.

If you have an issue or matter you want to talk to us about please get in touch using the details below

In 2009, she took up the role of Safer Neighbourhood Sergeant for Batchley and Central SNT, Abbey SNT, Headless Cross and Oakenshaw SNT and South West and Rural SNT.

Sergeant Nick Gianfagna

I joined West Mercia Police is August 2002, I started on the response team so i have a lot of experience dealing with a variety of incidents. I joined the Safer Neighbourhood Team as a Sergeant in April 2019. I am looking forward to the next phase in my career.

Police Constable Paul Downes

Paul joined West Mercia in April 2002 and has worked within the local communities of Redditch and spent three years on Roads Policing, before returning back to Redditch as the Local Policing Officer for Matchborough. Paul had been in the role for the last ten years and had a firm footing within the communities of Matchborough and Winyates. Paul has moved to South West and Rural, in the last 18 months and is very community focused and believes that the empowerment of the community is fundamental and paramount to the feel good factor within the local area. Together we do make a difference.

Jamie began his policing career in February 2007 when he joined West Midlands Police working predominantly on the Dudley LPU. In May 2015 he joined West Mercia Police as a student police officer but in February 2017 he decided to move back to his preferred role of a Community Support Officer where he is now enjoying getting to know his new South West and Rural patrol area.

Following a 20 year spell in the motor trade, he took up a full time career in policing, again with West Midlands Police, initially as a Community Support Officer, then as a constable.
