Local Policing Superintendent Claire Jenkins
I am Clare Jenkins and I’m honoured to be the Superintendent for the Knowsley Borough. I am responsible for the local police teams who work with our partner agencies and the community to solve local issues through joined up problem solving. We work together to protect and support vulnerable people and we are committed to targeting those offenders responsible for causing issues in our community both through disruption and diverting them away from crime.
I have 20 years’ police service, including 2 as a Special Constable. I worked as a Special Constable in St Helen’s town centre before arriving in Knowsley as a probationer. I spent three years in Knowsley, with Towerhill being my beat and I have family who live in Stockbridge Village, so I really see this posting as ‘coming home’.
During my career I’ve predominantly worked within Liverpool BCU, where I was a Neighbourhood Inspector, and also the Chief Inspector of operations for 3 years covering all of South Liverpool and Liverpool City centre. I particularly enjoy response policing and neighbourhood policing as well as public safety events and public order – although I’m hoping the latter won’t be required! I’ve had a few specialist postings including the Support Group/Matrix and the Force Intelligence Bureau and my previous 2 years have been within Business Change at headquarters where I worked on the force savings requirement and improvements to our efficiency and effectiveness.
It is quite clear that over the next few years and the foreseeable future we will see many challenges, however I strongly believe that by working together, with you the public, and our partners, to focus on the issues that affect our communities we can keep Knowsley safe.
Local Policing Chief Inspector Tami Gavey-Jones
Hi, I’m Tami Garvey-Jones, your local policing chief inspector. I’ve been a police officer for more than 22 years and my time has been spent mostly in uniform roles such as neighbourhood policing and patrol. I have also spent some time in CID, intelligence and plain clothes pro-active roles earlier in my career when I worked in Liverpool.
I have worked in Knowsley and St Helens and also performed strategic roles in Human Resources. I achieved success during my time as a neighbourhood inspector in Huyton, leading a team which reduced crime, anti-social behaviour and organised crime, whilst building up good partnership links within the community, local businesses and public services. I am privileged to be working in Knowsley and I aim to build upon the success of my predecessors and continue to improve public confidence and satisfaction with our force. Support from the communities we serve is crucial to tackling the problems and I will ensure every bit of information from the public will be acted on so that we can help make Knowsley a safe place to live and work.
