About My Role

Superintendent (Temporary)
Debbie Ford (7348)

Chief Inspector Debbie Ford

My job involves managing and developing the way our services are provided so that they meet the needs of local people while, at the same time, supporting the overall objectives of Northumbria Police.

Reporting directly to the Area Commander, I manage teams responsible for delivering Custody Services, Criminal Justice performance, development of Student Officers through the Tutor Unit and our Operations Specialist resources, which are Dogs, Motor Patrols and Area Support Groups.

Part of my role includes developing local partnerships and strategies to reduce crime and disorder and help make our communities safer.

I also play a key role in trying to ensure that all our human resources are available in the right place at the right time.
