Protecting County Durham and Darlington

Since 1839

As one of the top-performing police forces in the UK, here at Durham Constabulary we pride ourselves on doing things differently, and doing them well. 

When people visit Durham, they often comment ‘it feels different here’ – that is the Durham Difference.

Our philosophy is about being efficient, innovative and cultivating great partnerships which help with problem solving.

Our staff are positive, optimistic, professional and committed to delivering the best possible service to the people of County Durham and Darlington. The force is based at our headquarters in Aykley Heads, Durham.

Durham Constabulary is committed to providing ‘Altogether Better Policing’.

​Our commitment to you and what we will do to ensure victim satisfaction and public confidence.
