About My Role
Chief Superintendent Gary Calvert (7553)
I’m Chief Superintendent Gary Calvert, area commander for Newcastle. I lead a team of two Superintendents and four Chief Inspectors who oversee policing in the city.
I began my police career in Newcastle, and have returned on numerous occasions, in different capacities, during the past 25 years. I'm delighted to be back, following two and a half years as area commander at North Tyneside.
I head up a team of dedicated and professional police officers and staff who are determined to cut crime still further and bring those who commit crime to justice.
Our overall aim being, to continue to make Newcastle an extremely safe city
to live, work and visit.
As Northumbria’s busiest and most populated area command, Newcastle has a range of diverse communities, providing a cosmopolitan and vibrant city centre. We work closely with all of our communities to ensure that our policing services meet local needs.
I look forward to working closely with partner agencies and the community to deliver a policing service to be proud of.
