Shrewsbury Rural North and District

Your Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) is a group of local police officers dedicated to serving your community. The team is made up of officers and PCSOs based in your area, supported by additional officers from the wider area.

We work closely with local authorities, community leaders and residents to decide our policing priorities for the area. This helps us to find useful, long-term solutions to local problems, while maintaining our wider focus on reducing crime across Herefordshire, Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Worcestershire.

Please find contact details for your Safer Neighbourhood Team provided below. Please note that to report a crime or incident to West Mercia Police, you can visit or in an emergency, please dial 999.
