The Shropshire policing area is split into five districts – Oswestry, North, South, Bridgnorth and Shrewsbury – and serves a population of 292,800. There are 43 Safer Neighbourhood Teams supported by response and specialist police officers, police staff and Special Constables. The area command is in Shrewsbury and is headed by Superintendent James Tozer.
In Shropshire we remain 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 Shropshire in the best and most effective way that we can.
