Inspector Andy Bushell

Forth and Endrick Ward extends from the Carse of Stirling, overlooked by Stirling Castle, West to Blanefield and North to the shores of Loch Lomond, where it includes part of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. We also cover castles, a distillery and Ben Lomond which is the most southerly of the Munro Mountains.

Passing straight through the area are the West Highland Way, the Rob Roy Way and the new John Muir Way walking routes. The area plays host to major community events, large agricultural shows, including the largest one day event of its type at Drymen, sporting events and music festivals. The area is a focus for walkers and climbers all year round.

Operation Ironworks runs from April to October when visitor numbers to the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park increase. We work closely with our partners in the National Park Authority, The Forestry Commission, and neighbouring police divisions, to focus policing on the right people, in the right places and at the right time. This has improved the experience of visitors to the Park and continues to reduce anti-social behaviour.

Some of the nation’s main trunk roads, which are also some of the most scenic, pass through the area and we work to reduce collisions and injury on our roads.

Our focus is to reduce crime and disorder, to increase public reassurance within your community and make people feel safe, be they resident or visitor. We will continue to work closely with our partners to find effective long-term solutions to issues you have raised.
