Western Region Commander, Assistant Commissioner Brett Greentree, has announced the appointment of a new commander to Central North Police District.

Superintendent Tim Chinn took command of Central North Police District in late August 2021.

Western Region Commander, Assistant Commissioner, Brett Greentree said he welcomes Supt Chinn back to the region.

“He has hit the ground running in the midst of our COVID-19 operation and I look forward to working with him and what he will bring to Central North Police District,” Assistant Commissioner Greentree said.

“Supt Chinn will be of great value to our team as we continue to strengthen the officer-in-charge model across the western region.”

Supt Chinn joined the NSW Police Force in 1996 and was initially stationed at Penrith Police Station performing general duties.

In May 1997, Supt Chinn transferred to the Blue Mountains performing general duties and later highway patrol traffic duties. He transferred to Menindee in November 2003 as the lock up keeper, before being promoted to the rank of Sergeant at Bourke in June 2005.

He transferred to Bankstown Police Station in 2006, performing general and proactive crime duties, before transferring back to Menindee in April 2010, where he was the sector supervisor of Menindee, Ivanhoe and Tibooburra.

Supt Chinn was promoted to Inspector in December 2010 at Bourke, where he performed the role of duty officer for just over four years, before transferring to Police Transport Command where he managed policing functions on the transport network.

In August 2020, Supt Chinn transferred to Newcastle City Police District as a Duty Officer, before making his way to the Central North Police District.

Domestic violence and youth crime are areas that will be a priority for Superintendent Chinn during his time in Central North Police District.

“I will look at strategies to proactively target and disrupt crime in order to ensure the safety of the community,” Supt Chinn said.

“I look forward to working closely with the officers and community throughout the entire Central North Police District.”
