Wiltshire police is split into eight Community Policing Teams (CPTs). Each CPT is led by an inspector and made up of sergeants, PCs, PCSOs and is supported by additional officers from the wider area to help serve the community and help keep you safe.
Teams work closely with local authorities, organisations, partners and residents to decide policing priorities. This helps teams find long-term solutions to local problems.

Safer Spaces - including tackling Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) and Drug Dealing
Issued 16 November 2023
The local policing teams will be providing community reassurance patrols and also advocating the "Safe Places" project; establishing locations across the Amesbury area that provide a safe environment for people who may require some additional support when out and about in the community.
Safe Places are there to be used when people feel in need of a little extra help or support for various reasons; for example, during times of anxiety, fear or distress.
Teams will also be patrolling and assessing the localised hotspot areas for drug dealing.
