Argyll and West Dunbartonshire
Argyll and West Dunbartonshire division is the area covered by Argyll and Bute Council and West Dunbartonshire Council. The division is made up of the three command areas above.
The priorities for your area are decided by data from our strategic assessment which details threats and risks, and also from feedback from local authorities, partners, and residents in the Your Police survey.
- Serious organised crime
- Crimes of theft and dishonesty
- Road safety and road crime
- Violent crime
- Public protection.
You can read more information about how these priorities are decided and how officers work with local councils and partners to improve your community and address these issues, in the Argyll & Bute Local Policing Plan and West Dunbartonshire Local Policing Plan. You can also keep up to date with what's happening in your area through the divisional Facebook and Twitter channels.
The Divisional Commander is Chief Superintendent John Paterson, who is responsible for all policing in Argyll & West Dunbartonshire division and its three area commands.
