Welcome from Chief Superintendent Jon Roy
I am Jonathan Roy, Chief Superintendent responsible for leading Merseyside Police’s Local Policing teams. This is where you will find out all you need to know about the local officers and PCSOs responsible for policing your area and the ways you can contact them, including social media.
My aim is to ensure that Local Policing teams effectively serve all of our communities throughout Merseyside. We will do that by listening to and understanding your problems and needs and working with our partners to take effective action to address the causes of crime and disorder, making our communities feel safer & stronger, with fewer victims and less crime and anti-social behaviour.
Essential to this is ensuring that the public continue to see their local officers out and about in their communities and feel able to speak to them about the issues concerning them most. I believe that having officers with local knowledge and the skills to talk and really listen to the public and to work closely with partners will really make a difference.
I have joined Merseyside Police since 1994 with the vast majority of my service being spent working directly with partners and communities to solve the problems that matter most to them.
Having first walked the beat in Speke and Halewood my service has taken me to Knowsley, both as a constable on the frontline and as Area Commander in charge of a whole borough. I’ve also worked in Liverpool and the Wirral and held several posts leading Matrix units and being responsible for the planning and delivery of major events across Merseyside.
I truly believe in putting the communities we serve first. My absolute goal is to effectively listen to what our communities want and need from us and to make a difference to people’s problems, keeping the vulnerable safe and targeting our efforts towards people and places with the greatest need.
As head of Local Policing in Merseyside I will ensure we adopt a longer term perspective where the police and our partners look to intervene early and address the pathways that lead people into crime or into becoming victimised due to their vulnerability, and that we build a Local Policing function that is fit for purpose for the present and the future.
My colleagues in Wirral, Sefton, Knowsley, St Helens and Liverpool look forward to hearing from you and working for you to prevent crime and protect people and communities.
