Area Commander

Chief Inspector Christopher Stewart is the Local Area Commander for Falkirk and has responsibility for policing across these local areas.

The Area Command is made up of local wards which are:

Each area is served by a number of 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. 

Please note that our Community Team email addresses and social media channels are not for reporting crime or ongoing incidents. These should be reported by calling 101 (non-emergency) or 999 (emergency).


Contact Us

Our 'Contact Us' mailbox and community mailboxes are not monitored 24/7.

In an emergency always dial 999. For non-urgent crime, you can contact your local police office by telephoning 101.

There are several ways you can contact your Community Policing Team or make a report to the police.

If your report is not an emergency call 101 or, if your enquiry is an emergency, always dial 999. If you have dialled 101 or 999 by mistake or if you no longer require assistance, please stay on the line and let us know rather than ending the call.

If you wish to report a crime online, you can do so here.

If it is not an emergency and you are not reporting a crime, you can visit or email your Community Policing Team by clicking on the relevant Ward Areas listed above.

Alternatively, you can contact Scottish CrimeStoppers who are an independent charity that give people the power to speak up and stop crime anonymously.  You can call them on 0800 555 111 or email:

If you have a general enquiry or wish to provide feedback, you can complete the Contact Us form.
