 Durham

Durham Cathedral

As well as the historic City of Durham, this policing area covers 26 small villages, most of them former colliery settlements. The total population for the Durham district is about 90,200 people, with the university adding an extra 12,000 people during term time.

The district has been traditionally split into three main areas: Durham City, Sherburn/Bowburn and Meadowfield/Famwellgate, each covered by a neighbourhood beat team.

Insp 1448 Paul Anderson

​My name is Paul Anderson, Neighbourhood Inspector for Durham. My aim is to make Durham a safer place to live, work and visit. To achieve this, I believe it is important to work as a team, not only within our own organisation but with partners and the community, themselves. We will look to improve confidence and provide reassurance, by listening to the public and address problems together, as 'together we will make a difference'.
