Area Commander Chief Inspector Kevin McLean is the Area Commander for the East area and is responsible for response policing, performance management and the daily management of personnel. North East Command This area covers the east side of Edinburgh, which contains a historic castle, award winning parks, nearby beaches and lots of green space to enjoy. Various community projects and social housing schemes backed by local Government funding are rejuvenating some of the more socially deprived areas offering improved access to services and challenging inequalities to enhance community wellbeing. The area also accommodates the city's largest retail developments at Fort Kinnaird and Seafield, attracting commerce from across the region.
