Neil PudneyDistrict Commander: Chief Inspector Neil Pudney

“I’m really proud to be the new District Commander for Southend.
“My time as a uniformed officer and all that involved – partnership work, proactive policing and public engagement – is a highlight of my career and I’m delighted to be doing it again.

“This is a role I’ve actively sought out and Southend is wonderful borough in which to work.

“My focus will be to target those crimes which pose the greatest risk and to protect those who are most vulnerable.

“During my time as DCI for the south of the county, we saw the number of recorded burglaries reduce hugely and that is something I want to replicate in Southend.

“I believe strongly in proactively targeting offenders and placing the victim at the heart of everything we do. This is something I will impress upon my teams and ensure their values reflect mine.

“I’ve a huge passion for community policing and I believe partnership work and public engagement is crucial to make our communities safer.”
