Community policingChief Inspector Andy Somerville

Your district commander is Chief Inspector Andy Somerville. 

The Community Safety Units (CSUs) for Shepway and Ashford deal with local crime and safety issues.

Officers in the CSUs work alongside staff from other agencies, including Shepway District Council and Ashford Borough Council.

They aim to create a safe environment for you by reducing crime and anti-social behaviour. Working alongside your local PCSO, the CSUs have an important role in community policing.

You also have a Local District Policing Team. This is a group of officers who: 
  • respond to calls for assistance after you've called 999 or 101 (these calls go through to our Control Room*)
  • investigate local crime
  • carry out patrols
*Our Force Control Room is the first point of contact if you call Kent Police for help. They take 999 emergency calls and 101 non-emergency calls. 

Follow your local community policing team on Twitter for all the latest news where you live:
