Our Structure

Map of the East and West Local Policing Areas

In order to improve the service we provide we have made some changes to the way in which we are structured.  

From April 2015, Neighbourhood Policing has been organised into two Local Policing Areas (LPAs) one in the East, covering Newport and Monmouthshire and one in the West covering Caerphilly, Blaenau Gwent and Torfaen.

Why have we made these changes?

We would like to reassure you that the overall service you receive will be improved. As a result of the changes there are...

  • More officers with local knowledge based in the community
  • Officers moved from HQ support departments to neighbourhood policing
  • More officers working in the areas in which they are needed most
  • Neighbourhood Inspectors accountable to the community they serve
  • Neighbourhood Support Inspectors based in each Local Policing Area managing incidents as they occur
  • Specialist resources available locally, meaning a faster response with a greater understanding of local issues
