The Dales Policing area covers both Richmondshire and Hambleton District Council areas.

Safer Neighbourhood officers based at Bedale Police Station cover:

•Bedale,
•Crakehall,
•Leeming,
•Leeming Bar and

•Leyburn,
•Lower Wensleydale,
•Middleham,
•Bolton Castle,
•Reeth & Arkengarthdale,
•Swaledale and Hawes &
•High Abbotside

The Dales is predominantly a large rural area. In the west is the Yorkshire Dales National Park, a large farming community, a well established tourist industry and world famous horse racing community at Middleham.

In the east is RAF Leeming and a large farming community. Due to close proximity of the A1 arterial road network, there is a large business community at Leeming Bar.

The policing teams are an integral part of the local communities, working with local councils, forums, street surgeries and partnership agencies, to identify policing priorities, reduce crime and anti-social behaviour.

We work alongside volunteers who assist in running our police stations and numerous mobile watch patrols.

If you would like to become a volunteer, please call us on 101, select option 2, and ask for Bedale Police Station.
