North Yorkshire Police
Creating safer neighbourhoods for every community in North Yorkshire and the City of York is North Yorkshire Police’s overarching priority, and is at the heart of everything they do.
Across North Yorkshire there are six Safer Neighbourhood Commands with 24/7 responsibility for policing their areas, each led by a Safer Neighbourhood Commander.
Underneath the Commands are 18 Safer Neighbourhood Areas, each led by an Inspector. The Areas are further broken down into 44 Sergeant-led Safer Neighbourhood Teams.
