The Wythenshawe Neighbourhood Policing Team covers Brooklands, Baguley, Northenden, Sharston, Woodhouse Park and North Benchill.
Wythenshawe is a great place to live, work and visit. Historically it has had a reputation and I have to say we are moving away from this. We have very strong partnership links with social housing providers, council and the voluntary sector. This change has only come about because of the forging of these links and by having the cooperation of the communities of Wythenshawe.
We are all to aware of the current public sector cuts, but are working hard to ensure that the front end service for our communities is not affected. This is being supported by you as a user of our services, in only calling when there is a need to call, or at least, by calling the correct agency.
Our policing team is keen on getting it right first time, and welcome feedback from situations when we do and when we don't.
There are challenges coming up in the near future, in terms of trying to make further crime reductions especially with victim based crime. We have seen an increase in reporting of domestic abuse and welcome this as that gives an indication that the communities of Wythenshawe feel that any form of abuse is unacceptable.
We do host regular meetings across the area for communities to come together and give your opinion and ideas of how to make our area a safer place. Please do take time to see if you can attend one as your view is important.
Thank you for your continued support from all at the Wythenshawe Policing Team.
