Community safety

Devon and Cornwall Police - Torridge Neighbourhood Policing

Devon is committed to delivering a policing service that reflects the different needs and concerns of local communities.

To achieve this, Neighbourhood Policing Teams have been established in local communities, supported by additional 24-hour patrolling officers and specialist officers such as detectives, dog-handlers and traffic-officers. The force area has been accredited as the third safest place to live in England and Wales.

Our aim is to ensure local people are confident in their local police, that they are safe and they feel Torridge Sector is a safe place to live, work and visit. We have had some real successes in reducing crime and anti-social behaviour across Torridge, but there is no room for complacency as we know this is of little comfort to those of you effected by crime or disorder.

There are some real challenges which are often difficult to overcome and in order to do so we rely on the assistance of our local communities to work with us. This strong community spirit is prevalent across Torridge, our work is made that much easier because of your support and information.
