Midlothian is one of four area commands in the Lothians and Borders division.
The priorities for your area are decided by data from our strategic assessment which details threats and risks, and also from feedback from local authorities, partners, and residents in the Your Police survey.
- Protecting the most vulnerable people
- Reducing violence & anti-social behaviour
- Reducing acquisitive crim
- Improving road safety
- Tackling serious & organised crime.
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 Midlothian Local Policing Plan.

You can follow your local teams on Twitter where they post about how they are policing your community.
