IT’S ALL CHANGING HERE – THIS IS WHAT I KNOW

Some of you may have heard that the Wiltshire Constabulary is committed to changing to Neighbourhood Policing. Basically the county is being broken down into beat areas and Neighbourhood Police Teams are being set up. The Tisbury and Mere Police Section is being split into two beat areas (as opposed to the current six).
Tisbury
TISBURY, WEST TISBURY, WARDOUR, HATCH, EAST & WEST HATCH, NEWTOWN, BERWICK ST. LEONARD, CHICKSGROVE, CHICKLADE, CHILMARK, FONTHILL BISHOP, FONTHILL GIFFORD, FOVANT, HINDON, RIDGE, SUTTON MANDEVILLE, SWALLOWCLIFFE, ALVEDISTON, BERWICK ST.JOHN, CHARLTON, THE COOMBES, THE DONHEADS, LUDWELL & TOLLARD ROYAL
Mere
MERE, BURTON, EAST KNOYLE, WEST KNOYLE, SEMLEY, SEDGEHILL, WILLOUGHBY HEDGE, GASPER, KILMINGTON, MAIDEN BRADLEY, NORTON FERRIS, STOURTON, WOLVERTON & ZEALS.

Each beat area will have a Beat Manager who will be a Police Constable. He will be dedicated to dealing with local community issues and will not be abstracted elsewhere. He will be supported by a PCSO (Police Community Support Officer) who will be specially trained for the job.

There will be a response team based somewhere to deal with emergency calls, road traffic accidents and crime etc so don’t worry you haven’t been deserted. Precise details have yet to be announced.
