The oldest county Force in the country, Wiltshire Police was formed in 1839 and has a unique place in the history of policing. The Force is responsible for policing the county of Wiltshire and borough of Swindon in South West England with some 2000 police officers and police staff working round the clock.

The Force is committed to making Wiltshire the safest county in the country and serves a population of 635,000 people across 1,346 square miles - from Swindon's lively urban areas to the rolling countryside and iconic sites such as Stonehenge.

Wiltshire Police is led by Chief Constable Pat Geenty, who is supported by a team of three chief officers. The day-to-day policing services are delivered across the County area, headed by a Chief Superintendent and supported by specialist units including highly trained police dogs and air support.

Working with local communities is an essential part of modern policing and the Force has established 27 Neighbourhood Policing Teams, consisting of police officers, police community support officers (PCSOs) and special constables, who work closely with partner agencies to ensure the people of Wiltshire are kept safe, satisfied and confident with the service they receive.
