Lipson & Laira neighbourhood policing team

Insp Sally Hutchings

I am the Sector Inspector for South Sector, covering the City Centre, Waterfront and Stonehouse. I have been a Police Officer for 27 years, and previously a Sector Inspector at Devonport, Plymouth. I grew up in Plymouth myself, and still live in the city with my family.

I am committed to Neighbourhood Policing, I know it is where we can make a real difference to our communities. I am proud of the work that my staff achieve every day against the volume and diversity of challenges that are presented.

PCSO Elaine Wilson

I  joined Devon and Cornwall Police orginally as a Traffic Warden in 1991, working from Charles Cross Police station, covering the city centre.

2000 I then became a station enquiry officer at Ivybridge Station, years later I worked at Liskeard in the same role.

2007 I became a PCSO for Goosewell and Staddiscombe.

In February 2016 I moved to the Lipson and Laira area of Plymouth.

PC Rebecca Springbett

I joined the Devon and Cornwall Police in 1984 when I was posted to Launceston. From 1986 to date I have been stationed in Plymouth. In 2003 I started work as a Neighbourhood Beat Manager, firstly in the areas of Hartley, Compton and Mannamead and for the last 12 months in the areas of Lipson and Laira.

I am particularly interested in youth issues and am fully conversant with the youth justice system.

About this neighbourhood


The Lipson and Laira areas of Plymouth consist mainly of urban residential areas including a mix of privately owned, privately rented, council and housing association properties.

The population is diverse consisting of young families, employed couples and retired people. Much of the community activity is centred around Lipson Community College which currently has approximately 1,300 students, many from the local area.

The Local Neighbourhood Policing Team works closely with the students at the college to promote a sense of pride and value in the community.

Lipson and Laira have relatively few crime related problems. Issues highlighted at local Have Your Say Meetings have included low-level antisocial behaviour amongst teenagers and traffic-related issues.

We will continue to work with partner agencies and develop strategies to improve the quality of life for all residents in the Lipson and Laira neighbourhood.

The force responsible for policing and crime prevention in this area is Devon & Cornwall Police.
