About My Role

PC Ian McCafferty

181 PC Ian McCafferty

I am one of a team of Neighbourhood Beat Managers responsible for policing MetroCentre in Gateshead.

I joined Northumbria Police in 1998 and have and engineering management background.  I have worked at Sunderland Area Command on 24/7 response teams and worked on a neighbourhood team.

My role is to ensure that MetroCentre is and remains a safe place to work and visit.  My main aim is to prevent and detect crimes within MetroCentre by working in close partnership with the tenants, members of the public, security and management.

I want to provide the best quality service to this community and wish to give you more opportunities to have a say in the policing of this area.

I am keen to listen to your concerns and priorities and deliver a service based upon this and therefore would like to hear from you.

In line with the Policing Pledge all messages will be responded to promptly.
