North West is one of four area commands in the Edinburgh division.
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.
- Addressing violence
- Reducing drug harm and targeting supply
- Tackling housebreaking and crimes of theft and dishonesty
- Dealing with disorder and antisocial behaviour
- Making our roads safer.
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 Edinburgh Local Police Plan.
