Neighbourhood Policing has been a fundamental part of how we police in Sussex for some time. It has been hugely successful, making a real difference to the communities we serve and is very popular with the public.
In Brighton & Hove we have three Neighbourhood Policing Teams - Central Brighton, East Brighton and Hove. Each of the teams work alongside the local community to tackle the issues and priorities which are important to them.
Aims of the team
- Work to tackle priorities raised at Local Action Team meetings
- Work with our partner agencies to deal with all kinds of incidents including anti-social behaviour and neighbour disputes
- Build relationships with local communities so that teams are embedded at the heart of the communities they police
What we do
- The primary role of the Neighbourhood Policing Team is to deal with longer term priorities highlighted by the communities they serve
- We seek to engage with our communities in order to understand their issues and provide a service they want
- We run local beat community surgeries, crime prevention events, local newsletters, carry out action days on beats/wards, liaise with Neighbourhood Watch schemes, link in with local schools and the Universities and conduct uniformed patrols
- Each of the local teams is supported by the NPT Support Team, made up of Public Engagement Police Community Support Officer, Community Resolution Coordinator, Gypsy and Traveller Liaison Officer, the Street Community Team, ASBO Coordinator, YOS Officer, and Prevent officers.
