Swindon West Community Policing Team (CPT)

Swindon West CPT covers the West and North Central areas of the town.

Community Policing Teams

Community Policing is a new policing model introduced across Wiltshire Police in 2016, it has replaced the previous model of separate teams such as Neighbourhood Policing and Response, to bring together all officers,civilian staff and Special Constables in an area to work as one Community Policing Team.

Community Policing is the result of an in-depth project designed to look at how best Wiltshire Police can deal with the various demands on the service and improve the experience for victims of crime. It has been implemented to provide a more effective and efficient police service, putting the public at the heart of everything it does.
