Find a Local Neighbourhood Watch Scheme

The Totnes Town neighbourhood team is made up of myself PC Geoff Foster and PCSO Jay Vasey . It is one of three neighbourhood teams supervised by Sgt's Nikki Oakley and Helen Gerig who is known as the Neighbourhood Team Leader's and is based at Totnes police station.

The historic town of Totnes was, during medieval and Tudor times one of the wealthiest towns in Devon, second only to Exeter; its wealth being derived from the exporting of sheeps wool and locally mined tin.

Totnes is one of only 5 original Devonshire towns mentioned in the Doomsday Book, and has at its centre a fine example of a Norman castle, which was one of the first 3 stone castles to be constructed in Devon.

Totnes town centre remains a busy commercial area with many small unique shops and boutiques. The town boasts a wide and diverse cultural mix, which reflects its historic heritage. The town rises from Steamer Quay on the River Dart, which was once a thriving river port. This also helped with the towns expansion and prosperity, being the highest navigable port and the lowest bridging place on the Dart

The local school, King Edward VI Community College (KEVICS), is also covered by the neighbourhood team. The college has a wide catchment area with many of the students travelling from outside the town area.

Totnes is a safe place to live with the likelihood of being a victim of crime falling well below the national average. In addition, incidents of serious crime are very low indeed.

The main problems for the area are traffic issues, sporadic incidents of anti-social behaviour mainly on a weekend  and minor criminal damage, which includes some graffiti which occurs in isolated areas around the town.
