Neighbourhood policing week of action 2023
We are joining police forces up and down the country to celebrate Neighbourhood policing week of action. We will both celebrate the achievements of neighbourhood policing and provide opportunities and support for officers and staff throughout the week.
During the week we will highlight the vital work that neighbourhood officers, police community support officers (PCSOs) and volunteers do to protect the public and keep people safe.
The week of action will focus on four key themes, which are:
- early intervention
- problem-solving policing
- improving trust and confidence through neighbourhood policing
We have events and opportunities running all week to support these themes.
We will also be sharing a wide range of resources that the College has produced to support neighbourhood policing teams in their day-to-day roles including CPD, case studies, and problem-solving tools.
Follow along on social media using the hashtag #NeighbourhoodPolicingWeek.
