Community Policing

Recent months have seen change in the way the police interact with the community. The changes are described in full on our website here but, in summary, we now have 3 groups interacting to ensure policing is delivered in response to local needs:

  • the Neighbourhood Support Team (NST) comprise 3 officers dedicated to the area around West Bergholt and other nearby villages,
  • the Neighbourhood Action Panel (NAP) is a local volunteer-lead group who are fulfiling the objectives of a government-initiated plan to set policing priorities locally, and
  • the Neighbourhood Watch (NW) who are crucial to ensuring local eyes and ears are deployed in seeking out local problems and issues.
These bodies work together and complement each other well but although the NST, NAP and NW already in place we are still looking for somebody to act as a local NW Area Co-ordinator.  If you feel you could help the NW please contact them on 241716.
