Dumfries and Galloway covers some 2,649 square miles in the south-west of Scotland, an area of outstanding natural beauty in a mainly rural environment.
The Division has two territorial command areas each having a dedicated Area Commander who has the responsibility for all day-to-day policing functions in that area.
Each area is served by a number of community policing teams. These teams are built around the needs of local people. They are responsible for responding to calls in the local area, as well as looking for long term solutions to key issues.
