Liverpool

Welcome to your local policing information for Liverpool.

We want to involve you and keep you up to date about what we've been doing and what's going on where you live.

Local Policing Superintendent Mark Wiggins

Mark Wiggins I am currently the local policing Superintendent for Liverpool having worked in a number of roles in the area since 2008. I am responsible for leading the local policing teams in Liverpool who  work both with partners agencies and the community to solve local issues and to support and protect vulnerable people. My officers are also responsible for targeting those offenders who cause issues within our communities and using the most appropriate method to reduce their reoffending.

I joined the police in 1997 straight from university and I have worked in numerous role including neighbourhood policing, proactive policing teams and emergency response in Wirral, Knowsley and Liverpool.

I thoroughly enjoy the challenges that this role brings and being able to make a difference for people across the communities of Merseyside.

I am also experienced in policing public disorder, events and protests and have been involved in the policing of the Open golf, the grand national, football matches and protests within the city.

I am committed to continue to work closely with partner agencies and our communities to ensure my teams deal with issues that affect them most and I know that my officers are as committed to doing so.

Local Policing Chief Inspector Matt Boyle

Matt Boyle Hi, I’m Matt Boyle, your local policing chief inspector. I’ve been a police officer since 1998 and my first job was in Knowsley before moving to the force’s Operational Support Group in 2001 which later became known as ‘Matrix’. I remained there until 2008 and was promoted to the rank of Inspector and served in Sefton and St Helens areas and the Force Operations Department before an enjoyable and rewarding spell as head of the Dog Section at Mather Avenue in Allerton.

I returned to Knowsley as Chief Inspector in charge of operations in 2013 before transferring to Liverpool in July 2015 where I have been ever since. 

I am a qualified public order commander and have taken part in many public order incidents and high-profile public events where keeping people safe is paramount. I’ve also led policing operations on match days at Anfield and Goodison Park.

As part of the Liverpool command team I hope to work with the community policing teams where you live in order to deliver an effective and efficient service to the public and encourage officers to put communities first in everything they do.
