Divisional Commander

Originally from North Sutherland, Chief Superintendent Macdonald began his career with Grampian Police in 1991. His police career has seen him undertake a variety of roles within the police including operational policing at all ranks, CID, Intelligence and extensive partnership working with public, private and voluntary sectors.

He has worked both within Aberdeen City and the rural communities of Aberdeenshire and Moray prior to moving to the Highland and Islands Division in May 2017.

Highland and Islands Division

The Highland and Islands Division is the most northerly in the UK and covers a large geographical area. Its communities have a hospitable reputation and local policing is designed around each community's needs.

The Division has six territorial command areas which have their own dedicated Area Commander who is responsible for the daily policing functions in that area.

Each area is served by a number of community policing teams. These teams are built around the needs of the local communities and are responsible for responding to local calls and looking for long term solutions to key issues.
