Getting to Know Our Neighbourhood Faces: Dan Whyte, City Centre Neighbourhood Sergeant

NAME: Dan Whyte
TITLE: City Centre Neighbourhood Sergeant

 

Team NE1 takes to the streets to catch up with City Centre Neighbourhood Sergeant, Dan Whyte...

 

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF YOU…

My role as the Neighbourhood Sergeant means I have a team of police officers and police community support officers to oversee. As a team, we set about problem solving to help make the city an even better place.

 

 

THE BEST BIT ABOUT YOUR JOB…

I love my job! I’ve been a police officer for close to 10 years and I can honestly say I’ve never enjoyed a role so much. I joined the police like most... ‘to make a difference’. My role is to ask the community what effects them and then act on it. Every effort doesn’t always get the results we hope, but the team and I try every day to help this amazing city.

 

WHEN YOU’RE NOT DOING YOUR WORK THING YOU ARE…

I have a wife and two children (2 & 4) with a third on the way, so as you can imagine, it’s pretty hectic, but I love spending time with my family. I actually come to work for a rest - believe it or not!

 

IF YOU WERE TO JOIN THE NE1 TEAM YOU WOULD…

Give the Street Rangers team a hand! I have huge respect for them and we have a great relationship in the city centre. Whenever I see them they are hard at work. I honestly don’t think the city would be the same without them!

 

 

A QUICK MESSAGE FOR THE PEOPLE OF NEWCASTLE…

We, the City Centre Neighbourhood Team, are only as good as the information we have. We are always looking at new ways to engage with the people of Newcastle. I assure you we want to ensure this city is as safe and wonderful as can be. If you see us walking around please stop and talk to us - we want to hear from you. If you want to speak with me directly to raise any concerns or have any ideas how we can engage more with the community feel free to email me at: [email protected].
