Neighbourhood Policing

Police Force:
Find a Local Neighbourhood Watch Scheme

The area that we cover is a mix of Rural and Town communities, which have different issues affecting them. We try to improve all areas with the help of the local parish councils and residents, making ourselves the first point of contact for non emergency dealings with the police.

The rural areas Bishops Tawton, Landkey & Swimbridge rarely get affected by crime and the likelihood of being a victim of crime is well below the national average. Due to Whiddon Valley being on the edge of Barnstaple town, more crime occurs here in comparison to the rural areas but these are still relatively low in comparison to the national average.(Whiddon Valley is now managed by PCSO Marcus Jarvis alongside the Forches area).

Overall the fear of crime is one of the main issues that we try to deal with. We are countering this by participating in high visibilty patrols on foot, bike, car and van as often as possible, to reassure the communities that we serve. We also promote our services and work in local newsletters to positively encourage the community to contact us through a variety of ways, including the monthly newsletter. (you can find a link at the bottom of the grey menu).
