Mid Argyll Kintyre and Islands

The Argyll, Bute and West Dunbartonshire Division serves around 182,000 people across 2950 square miles, from urban Clydebank to the island communities of Mull and Islay. The area attracts hill walkers and mountaineers, so the division works closely with the Force Mountain Rescue Team.

The division has four territorial command areas in line with the respective local councils. Each has a dedicated area commander who has the responsibility for day-to-day policing functions.

Each area is also served by 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.
