Consett neighbourhood policing team covers a large geographical area.
This is made up of 13 council wards, a mix of densely populated areas such as Consett, Leadgate, Delves Lane and Blackhill and the rural communities of Castleside, Cornsay and Burnhope.
The area extends from Hamsterley Mill in the north to Langley Park in the south, Holmside in the east to Waskerley and Muggleswick in the west.
The area has relatively low crime, although criminal damage is a particular issue. Consett town centre has a booming night time economy which contributes greatly to trade in the area, but can lead to anti- social behaviour and disorder. We are reducing this through positive and proactive policing.
We are improving the way we engage with you via PACT (police and communities together). It may mean some poorly attended PACT meetings are cancelled, but alternative ways to engage will be introduced instead. It could see your neighbourhood PC or PSCO visiting places like the local library, baby groups, post office, sports classes or even the pub to hear your views. Visit your neighbourhood policing team website page or Facebook and Twitter feeds for the latest details.
