Neighbourhood policing celebrated in national week of action

Devon and Cornwall Police are supporting the National Police Chiefs’ Council neighbourhood policing week of action, which focuses on recognising the hard work and dedication of our neighbourhood policing colleagues.

This week of action will take place from Monday 17th – Sunday 23rd January 2022.

Neighbourhood policing is designed to make the police more visible, reduce fear among the communities and aid interaction between the public and the police. It also helps build local knowledge, gain intelligence and build support from the public.

Assistant Chief Constable Jim Nye said: “Neighbourhood policing is at the heart of everything we do and building trust and confidence with our local communities is vital in helping us to prevent crime, keep people safe, especially the most vulnerable members of our communities, and bring offenders to justice.

“This week of action is an ideal opportunity to recognise and celebrate the vital work that all our Neighbourhood Policing teams and our wider policing family perform to keep the communities of Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly safe.”

To find details of your Neighbourhood Policing Team, go to devon-cornwall.police.uk/your-area. Our neighbourhood teams are available to discuss any issues you may have in your area. You can contact them online at devon-cornwall.police.uk/contact, or leave them a message using the 101 non-emergency service. Remember, if a crime is in progress or life in danger, always dial 999.
