Aberdeen City South

Aberdeen South is served by Police Officers based in the City Centre, Torry, Nigg, West End, Hazlehead and Rosemount. This area is diverse with major arterial routes running through it, very large residential areas and a strong mix of commercial and retail premises. There are also several significant locations within it, most notably Union Street and Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. Policing in the area, as across Aberdeen, is very much community focused, with significant emphasis on quality of life issues. We are assisted in this endeavour by our many partner agencies, local citizens and businesses.
