Forest of Dean
We cover 5 neighbourhoods in the Forest of Dean. Inspector Andrew Hodgetts is the main point of contact for local communities and partner organisations. He has spent most of his career engaged with Neighbourhood Policing with considerable experience in dealing with diverse communities in Birmingham and various public focused operations. These efforts have resulted in two Excellence in Service Delivery Awards and a Chief Constable’s Award in recent years through work specifically focused on putting the public first. His focus for the future is centred on making the Forest of Dean safer and its communities stronger through making the police more accessible and accountable, in line with the PCC’s priority. On top of Andrew’s primary role he is also the chair of the Forest of Dean Community Safety Partnership and an active member of the Road Safety Liaison Group and the Hate Crime Group. He also leads the Constabulary’s PCSO Forum, a platform to link over 100 specialists in community building and problem solving, working together to keep people safe from harm.
