New Chief Inspector for Knutsford

By on January 20, 2018

New police Chief Inspector at Macclesfield Local Policing Unit, Laura Marler, is looking forward to leading a new challenge with Cheshire Police.

Following a 19 year police career, most recently overseeing neighbourhood policing at Greater Manchester Police, Laura has already said that she sees the commitment of officers.

She said: “I wanted a new challenge and to push myself further by working in a new force, new people, new area and forming new partnerships.


“My passion and most enjoyable roles has been in neighbourhood policing as both Inspector and the last three years as a Chief Inspector overseeing neighbourhood policing.

“In my first week I have been impressed with the enthusiasm and commitment shown by my new team of officers, PCSOs and support staff and will be ensuring this is demonstrated in the community and towards those people we are here for.”

Laura follows previous chief inspector Rob Dickinson and will be based at Macclesfield Police Station and will cover the Knutsford area.
