For the past two years I have held the position as Neighbourhood Policing Inspector for Southend West covering Leigh, Eastwood and Westcliff. I have spent my entire 20 years service in Southend District overseeing daily policing as well as running a number of proactive teams and departments. During this time I have seen Leigh grow into the interesting and diverse place it is today. I can confidently say that Leigh is a safe and low crime area to live and my goal during my time here is for it to remain that way.
