Arun occupies the central southern area of West Sussex and is bordered by Chichester district to the west and Worthing and Horsham to the east, and has a population of over 155,000. The district is bisected by the River Arun and is divided between a broad rural area in the north of the district that contains Arundel and a host of small villages, part of which sits within the South Downs National Park, and an urban coastal strip that includes Bognor Regis and Littlehampton.

Chief Inspector Jon Carter

Jon is the policing commander for Arun and Chichester and is responsible for the delivery of local policing in Arun and Chichester districts. He leads both the local Response Teams and the local Neighbourhood Policing Team consisting of both police officers and Police Community Support Officers who together are dedicated to protecting our communities, catching criminals and delivering an outstanding service to our communities.

Alongside his current role, Jon has a number of operational command roles including firearms and public order as well as being the force lead for Police Community Support Officers and anti-social behaviour. In these roles, Jon works with colleagues across the force to ensure that colleagues are able to deliver the best possible service to the public and that as a force we are making proportionate use of the legislation that is available, as well as commanding the deployment of officers with specialist skills to deal with specific incidents.
