National Neighbourhood Policing Week, 22 – 28 January 2024 is a campaign that provides the opportunity to showcase problem solving examples and achievements, to demonstrate how police work daily with community groups and to encourage the public to find out more about their local Neighbourhood Policing Teams and ways to get in contact.

Lisburn & Castlereagh PCSP Chairman, Councillor Alan Givan met with officers from Lisburn City Neighbourhood Team recently in Lisburn City Centre to discuss progress of a recent Business Watch Initiative to encourage business to avail of crime prevention and reduce the risk of shop lifting. Other initiatives discussed included Neighbourhood Watch, Farm Watch and No Cold Calling Zones.

In recognition of the hard work of Neighbourhood Police Officers that work across our area, Councillor Givan said, “I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of Lisburn & Castlereagh PCSP to celebrate the vital work of neighbourhood policing teams and their officers. The work that they are involved in on a daily basis illustrates the Hallmarks of Neighbourhood Policing in action with everyday neighbourhood policing. As a local councillor for Lisburn South and currently the Chairman of the PCSP, I see the dedication and professionalism of each officer and how they have the ability to resolve community issues before they develop into bigger and more complex incidents.”

There are three Neighbourhood Policing Teams operating across the council area and they focus on Lisburn City, Lisburn Rural and Castlereagh. Each team can be contact either through the 101 telephone number or on their work mobiles which are listed at this link.
