Neighbourhood Policing Teams, Community Safety Volunteers and partner agencies are working together across the four local authority areas to help residents protect their homes and properties.
They do this in numerous ways including neighbourhood surgeries, delivery of quick comms leaflets following crimes, community events and target hardening of vulnerable streets.
PCSOs and Officers from NPTs across the force hold regular events on their patches to engage with residents within community buildings, at shops and inside police stations all with the aim of assisting the public with local problems. This does include dealing with crime and anti-social behaviour issues affecting them, but also encompasses giving out advice in relation to crime prevention. Details of local meeting are available via the My Neighbourhood pages on the Police website.
