What does the team do?

The South Warwickshire Special Constabulary Priorities Team (or Specials Priorities Team [SPT]) is made up of 17 skilled Special Constables who take on priorities identified by Safer Neighbourhood Teams (SNTs) across the south of the county.

The SPT addresses burglary, vehicle theft, drugs offences, rural crime and other local priorities in the major towns of Alcester, Kenilworth, Leamington Spa, Southam, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick and the rural areas of South Warwickshire. The officers will be carrying out proactive operations, patrols and events as well as promoting crime prevention and awareness.

The focus of the team's activities is decided by SNT management and the SPT on a weekly basis. Consistent shifts and operations are organised according to the priority needs and how these can be tackled and solved. To achieve these SPT is working with local and specialist teams to deliver the most appropriate, focused service it can provide.
