Introducing Cramlington’s new Neighbourhood Inspector…
April 21, 2021
For 20 years Police officer Jonathan Caisley has been keeping the streets of Northumberland and North Tyneside safe.
Now, all that experience will help prepare him for his new role as Cramlington and Blyth’s Neighbourhood Inspector.
Insp Caisley is excited to lead the Neighbourhood Policing Team for a community he’s already very familiar with.
The officer, who joined Northumbria Police in 2001, aged 25, said: “I’m lucky that I’m taking on this role already knowing the communities really well.
“I started my policing career in North Shields, moving to Whitley Bay and then to Cramlington to join their response team.”
He served two years in the tutor unit as a Tutor Constable before moving to Morpeth Response Team.
Next he applied for a role in Cramlington’s Neighbourhood Policing Team where he stayed until he was promoted to Sergeant and covered Wallsend.
He added: “I was transferred back to Blyth in my role as Sergeant and I am over the moon to now be an Inspector for an area I already know and love.”
Insp Caisley’s new role sees him overseeing a team of 29 officers.
Discussing his priorities, he said: “This is a great area to police, it’s an area with a strong sense of community spirit and I’m looking forward to building even stronger links between the communities and my team and managing a team that that can support the community, while being supported by the community.
“A key priority for me is to tackle crime and disorder by understanding the causes and the root of the issues and from there using effective problem solving to find long term solutions, not quick fixes.”
He added: “I really am very proud to have taken over the role.”
Luckily for Insp Caisley, he is well supported in his new job by his family, especially his wife, a fellow Inspector for Northumbria Police.
