The Herefordshire policing area is split into three districts – North Herefordshire, City & Rural (covering Hereford and the surrounding area) and South Herefordshire – and serves a population of 179,300 permanent residents as well as significant numbers visiting the county. There are 20 Safer Neighbourhood Teams supported by teams of response and specialist police officers, police staff and Special Constables. The area command is in Bath Street, Hereford and is headed by Superintendent Ivan Powell.
Across Herefordshire we are committed to promoting community safety, improving public confidence and satisfaction in policing services and protecting the public. We place great importance upon listening to the needs and concerns of our communities and seeking a clear understanding of what is important to them.
Over the next year and beyond, our aim is to work smarter, operate using streamlined processes and focus all of our efforts on serving and protecting the public of Herefordshire in the best and most effective way that we can.
