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:

  • Burglary

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