Lipson & Laira neighbourhood policing team

Insp Darren Green

I have been a police officer for over 26 years.

I have worked in Plymouth since 2000. I have worked as  Inspector for Central Sector since 2012. It is a very diverse part of the city which brings many policing challenges.

We are committed to working together to keep people safe, reduce crime and bring offenders to justice.

A. Sgt Mark Williams

I joined Devon and Cornwall Police in 2007 initially as a Police Community Support Officer in Central Plymouth covering Lipson and Laira before my career as a constable. I chose the option of being posted to East Cornwall covering the Saltash, Torpoint and Callington areas as a Patrol officer to explore the challenges of rural policing.

In 2011 I moved to the West Devon area covering the Tavistock and Okehampton areas in a Response/Neighbourhood/Investigation hybrid role before returning to Plymouth in 2014 where I started my current role of Neighbourhood Beat Manager in the Plymouth East End.

In 2015 I also took on the extra responsibility of being the Acting Sergeant for the East End, as well as Plymstock; Goosewell & Staddiscombe; Lipson & Laira; Elburton & Dunstone; Turnchapel, Hooe, Oreston & Mount Batten; Mount Gould; and Efford.

I am committed to using as much time as my role allows to patrol the area engaging with residents, agencies and businesses to help me gain an insight in to what issues are emerging to deal with them as effectively as possible.

If you see me walking in the area I would encourage you to stop and speak to me to voice concerns and observations, pass information or to ask any questions.

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

map

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.
