Greater Glasgow Division

Greater Glasgow Division provides policing services across 215 square miles and serves almost 770,000 people. 

It includes a wide contrast of communities, from densely populated areas such as Drumchapel and Easterhouse, to the semi-rural villages of Eaglesham and Twechar. 

The area is home to a number of football stadia, including the National Football Stadium at Hampden, Celtic Park, Ibrox Stadium, and Firhill.

Greater Glasgow Division has nine Command Areas aligned with the respective local councils areas. Each has a dedicated Area Commander, with the responsibility for all day-to-day policing functions.

Each area is served by a number of Local Policing teams who are responsible for responding to calls in the local area, and smaller Local Problem Solving teams who have the responsibility for looking at long term solutions to key issues. These teams are built around the needs of local people.
