Coronovirus (Covid-19) update

We encourage everyone to follow the Government guidance and #StayHomeSaveLives. For this reason we will not be holding any more engagement events with our communities for the foreseeable future. Whilst we love seeing you, these events are non-essential in the current circumstances.   

You will still see us out and about as we continue to do our job and keep our communities safe. As always there are a number of ways you can get in touch with us if you need us.

Stay informed through our social media channels, find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.  Don't forget to also sign up to My Community Alert and receive community alerts directly to your devices.

For incidents that don’t require an immediate response call our non-emergency 101 line. You can also report non-emergency crimes online via our reporting portal. In an emergency always dial 999.

What's Happening In Your Area?


We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert

This means you must: • stay at home as much as possible • work from home if you can • limit contact with other people • keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible) • wash your hands regularly Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms

Operation Yellowfin

Operation Yellowfin is a police operation to tackle the crime associated with motorbikes and off-road bikes. Front line officers continue to work alongside CID and our intelligence units to gather information about people we suspect of carrying out thefts and motorcycle related crime


Operation Galileo is in full process and is the Forces response to the annual issue of poachers. The area is a vast terrain and the challenge for specialised officers is to tactically pinpoint the hotspot locations where these poachers are committing cruel offences such as hare coursing. We are developing an intelligence picture of repeat offenders however it is your help that we require if we are to make a further difference. If you see a vehicle in a field that looks strange or a group of individuals on land with dogs then please telephone the Police. We may not get to all of these offenders; however, with the community’s help we can reduce the opportunities for poaching. If anyone would like any further information about our work in this area of crime then please contact your local policing team
