It is our intention for our communities to know their Neighbourhood Policing Team and for us to know our communities, making ourselves accessible to our local community, helping to identify local priorities and working with residents and partner organisations such as the local authority to find solutions to local crime and disorder problems.
Your Neighbourhood Policing Team is made up of police officers, special constables, police community support officers and volunteers. The Team work together with the community and other partners to tackle local problems and improve the quality of life in your neighbourhood. If you’d like to meet your Neighbourhood Policing Team, come along to one of monthly surgeries.
