We're working hard to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour to make your area a safer place to live and work. You can have your say on how these priorities are set by contacting your neighbourhood policing team and indentifying the issues that matter to you.

Here are the priorities we are currently tackling in your area:

  • Mini bikes and motorcycles being used off road and causing annoyance to residents. Vehicles also being used on public roads.
  • House burglaries and other offences at sheds and shop premises overnight.

For a full list of priorities, click here

Community meetings are held regularly in your community, giving you an opportunity to speak to your local officers or discuss local policing issues.
