The Community Policing Team (CPT) model was rolled-out across Wiltshire Police in 2016.

The new model brings neighbourhood policing, response teams and local crime investigators into a single team for a more effective approach to community policing. It means there is a bigger team of officers and police staff  available to attend incidents and improves communication between teams and departments.

Each Community Policing Team is overseen by a Superintendent with an Inspector and a deputy. The team is made up of a mix of police officers, community co-ordinators, PCSOs, civilian local crime investigators and Specials.

We believe the new model gives the public a better service, allowing the potential for issues to be resolved at the first point of contact (101 and 999 call-takers) and giving victims a named officer or member of police staff to contact during investigations. It also encourages officers and staff to take more ownership of cases.

Our six Community Policing Teams are Swindon North, Swindon South, Wiltshire North, Wiltshire West, Wiltshire East and Wiltshire South. You can find out more at Your Area
