- Road safety and road crime
- Serious organised crime
- Crimes of theft and dishonesty
- Antisocial behaviour, violence and disorder
- Protecting vulnerable people
- Terrorism and public order.
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 Orkney Local Policing Plan.
