Renfrew Area Command

Renfrewshire borders the south-west of Glasgow and contains many commuter towns and villages. It also has boundaries with North Ayrshire, East Renfrewshire, Inverclyde and West Dumbartonshire across the Erskine Bridge. Although by area it is one of Scotland's smallest unitary authorities (excluding the cities), it is one of the country's most populous areas. It is home to iconic sites such as the Braehead and Xscape Complex and Glasgow Airport, which attract over 20 million and 7 million customers per year respectively. In addition the largest of the four campuses that make up the University of West of Scotland is situated in the area. The campus occupies over 20 acres and is home to teaching, lecture rooms, workshops, laboratories and student accommodation. Renfrewshire has a rich history in effective partnership working which helps to deliver highly successful policing, impacting positively on local communities.
