Galloway is one of two command areas in Dumfries and Galloway.
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.
- Violent crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour
- Crimes of theft and dishonesty
- Substance misuse
- Road safety and road crime
- Protecting vulnerable people.
You can read more information about how these priorities are decided and how officers work with the local council and partners to improve your community and address these issues in the Dumfries & Galloway Local Policing Plan.
Area Commander and localities
Chief Inspector Bryan Lee is the local area commander in charge of the response officers, community officers, and officers from the criminal investigation department working in the individual localities. They all respond to calls in the area and deal with local issues. You can contact the Community Policing Teams on:
StewartryCPT@Scotland.pnn.police.uk or WigtownCPT@Scotland.pnn.police.uk
You can also follow your local teams on Twitter where we post about how we are policing your community.
Please note the social media channels are not monitored 24/7, and are not for reporting crime.
The Area Command is made up of local wards which are:
- Stranraer and the Rhins
- Mid Gallwoay and Wigtown West
- Dee and Glenkens
- Castle Douglas and Crocketford
Call us on 101 if you need advice or to report a crime, or 999 if it is an emergency
