Neighbourhood policing

Information, guidance and advice, based on evidence, on how to understand communities and build trust. And how to work with these communities, supported by private, public and voluntary sector partners.


These neighbourhood policing guidelines were originally published in October 2018. For each area of effective neighbourhood policing there are:

  • guidelines for chief officers
  • highlights on what is essential based on the evidence
  • supporting practical materials for different roles in policing
