This area covers Newton Aycliffe, Aycliffe Village, Middridge, Shildon, Eldon, Sedgefield, Bradbury, Mordon, Fishburn and the Trimdons, a total population of 50,000 people.
We work from our new Community Station at Central Avenue in the heart of Newton Aycliffe Town Centre.
The area is covered by a local CID team, five response teams and neighbourhood teams.
The neighbourhood teams work from each of the three local stations. Each has a Sergeant, PC's and PCSO's, each with a geographical responsibility.
They are supported by a crime reduction officer and a community liaison officer. Special Constables have also worked with us to provide extra patrols and visibility.
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.
