Week of events to promote and celebrate neighbourhood policing
Main article content
Members of the community will this week be given an insight into neighbourhood policing in Warwickshire.
This is part of the national Neighbourhood Policing Week of Action, an opportunity to promote the great work done by our neighbourhood policing teams.
The role of neighbourhood policing teams includes:
Engaging communities – being active in the community, being informative and engaging with local people.
Solving problems – using structured problem-solving to deal with local priorities in partnership with communities
Targeting activity – making sure police activity is in the right areas to prevent crime, ensure early intervention, engage with communities and solve problems.
Warwickshire Police has more than 80 officers and 60 police community support officers who focus on these priorities.
Chief Inspector Dave Kettle, neighbourhood policing lead, said: “Our safer neighbourhood policing teams perform the traditional ‘bobby on the beat’ role. They’re the local face of policing with a focus on building relationships with the local community, responding to local concerns, problem solving and deterring crime in communities.
“Throughout the week we will be using our social media accounts to give the public a better idea of the day-to-day role of neighbourhood policing officers.”
You can follow the activity on the force and local Facebook and Twitter accounts (links below). We will start today the safer neighbourhood teams in the Rugby borough.
