Divisional Commander

Chief Superintendent Thom McLoughlin is the Divisional Commander for Forth Valley.


Forth Valley Division

Forth Valley Police Division serves around 294,430 people over an area of 984 square miles, stretching from the mountain tops of Loch Lomond to Blackness in the East.

The Division has three area command areas aligned with the three local councils – Falkirk, Stirlingshire and Clackmannanshire.

Each local authority has a dedicated Area Commander who has responsibility for all day-to-day policing in the area and is served by a number of community policing teams.

For regular crime prevention information and to hear what’s happening across the Division, like ‘Forth Valley Police Division’ on Facebook and follow ‘@ForthValPolice’ on Twitter.

You can also follow '@PCGav' on Twitter for advice and updates from our very own PC Gav McDevitt, who also acts as Special Constable Coordinator for Forth Valley.

Our new 3 year policing plans for 2020 - 2023 have been drafted following extensive public consultation and will be published following scrutiny by the local authority.  This will be done as soon as the current situation improves to allow this to be completed safely.
