Policing the Pandemic: Merseyside in Lockdown and Beyond

Assistant Chief Constable Jon Roy to discusses policing in the 21st Century, challenges in Merseyside, the impact of Covid-19 and the next steps in recovery.

Merseyside Police is a modern force with traditional values and prides itself on being one of the best performing Metropolitan forces in the Country, adopting its policing approach to deliver the best possible service to its communities and colleagues.

Like many forces, Merseyside Police faces new crime challenges requiring different skill sets and innovative approaches. Demand has changed with forces dealing with more complex and harder to investigate crimes, the internet, for example, is a community in itself and there is a forever widening scope involving protecting vulnerable people. This is all in a world of drastic funding cuts and increased scrutiny from the media and public.

As Assistant Chief Constable for Local Policing and Criminal Justice, Jon is responsible for all officers and staff policing Merseyside’s communities on a day-to-day basis, partnership working across the areas and all staff involved in criminal justice from custody through to the court procedure.

Jon is driven by a desire to consistently improve the way the force works, engaging with the community and ensuring a visible and accessible and preventative Neighbourhood Policing style.
