About My Role

PC Ged Foster

1421 PC Ged Foster

I have been a police officer since 1994 and am responsible for the Birtley area.

My day-to-day duties involve ensuring close links are maintained with all sections of the local communities.
I see my role as one of public reassurance and I try to look for long term solutions to issues that concern everyone in the area I work, this can only be done with the assistance of the public and by working with other agencies.

My role as a Neighbourhood Beat manager is to meet the needs of local communities, uphold the protection of life and property, maintain peace and encourage the reduction or prevention of crime through:-

  • The identification of problems of crime, disorder and other quality of life issues experienced by all sections of the local community, particularly vulnerable groups.

  • Involvement in problem solving initiatives aimed at addressing the underlying causes of many of these issues.

  • Provision of a highly visible uniformed presence, aimed at reassuring the local community and reducing the fear of crime.

I am keen to build close ties with the people who live and work here so please do get in touch if you have any policing issues you wish to bring to my attention.
