Dumfries and Galloway Division is the area covered by Dumfries and Galloway Council. The division is made up of the two 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.

- Crimes of theft and dishonesty
- Substance misuse

- Protecting vulnerable people.
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 Dumfries and Galloway Local Policing Plan.
You can also keep up to date with what’s happening in your local area through the divisional Facebook and Twitter channels.
