North Warwickshire policing area

North Warwickshire policing area serves a population of 288,800 comprising a mix of diverse and emerging communities, with the main towns across the area including Atherstone, Coleshill, Nuneaton, Bedworth, and Rugby.

The area command is at Nuneaton. There are 19 Safer Neighbourhood Teams supported by patrol officers, criminal investigation teams, and specialist police officers, police staff and special constables.

Collectively these officers work for the community tackling a wide range of crime and quality of life issues on a daily basis. We assess incidents on the basis of threat, risk and harm and deploy our resources to tackle those who cause the most harm to our communities. We also recognise that each area has its own issues and the policing response will be tailored based on these local variations.

Safer Neighbourhood Teams focus on providing a dedicated support and resolution role and work with partner agencies and individuals within the community to identify and solve concerns that affect their locality.

North Warwickshire has strategic road links with the M6, A5 and M69 passing through the area and local officers with support tackle the criminals that travel those routes with a view to making local communities safer from the threat of harm.

We focus work around high risk and prolific offenders and our Neighbourhood Teams will:

  • Engage with communities and partners to innovate, identify opportunities and create sustainable solutions to local problems.
  • Work with partners and communities to tackle the harm caused by crime and anti-social behaviour.
  • Be visible, accessible and accountable to local communities.
  • Engage with the Community Forum process and address priority concerns.
  • Seek to identify those at most risk of harm and support them through appropriate interventions.
  • Engage with young people and deliver prevention and early intervention activities in partnership with local schools.
