Cannock’s local policing team (LPT) has been bolstered with the arrival of a new Chief Inspector (CI).
CI Laura Morrey, who arrives with over 19 years’ experience, joins Inspector Chris Moss as part of the force’s implementation of the new operating model.
CI Morrey has specialist experience across a plethora of demanding departments within the force, including the sex offender management team and various roles within local policing.
Her appointment comes after the launch of the newest police operating model, which is designed to strengthen the force’s focus on local policing and partnerships.
It sees significant investment in local officers who will be embedded within the community to ensure the primary concerns and needs of the public are actioned as efficiently as possible.
CI Morrey, who is approaching her third decade with Staffordshire Police, joined the LPT on Monday (27 June).
“I love how versatile working in neighbourhood policing is,” said CI Morrey.
“I have nearly 20 years’ experience working in local policing and I know how important it is to get it right first time and deal with what really matters.
“As we embed our new model, our community will now benefit from quicker response times, improved team liaison and a better service – which is advantageous for everyone, apart from the criminals!
Laura added: “As the new CI, it’s my responsibility to remove any blockades and to allow my team to develop an enhanced local knowledge and work with partners in order to solve problems and allow them more time to investigate and invest in our communities.
“Those of us who work in policing are facing constant challenges at the moment and I want to make sure I am there for the team and all the staff.
“I’m a real people person, so I’m looking forward to working with the brilliant people we have on the team to help resolve problems in our communities.
“My priority is to make people feel safe and let them know that I am here for them, whatever difficulties they may face.”
