Welcome to South Division, which covers Preston, South Ribble, Chorley and West Lancashire areas.
Please select the area where you live below to find out about what's going on in your area, details of your local policing team, including how you can contact them, and where your nearest police station is.
Have your say
We’d also encourage you to get involved in local policing too, telling us what sort of issues you think we should be tackling.
Ensuring that your views are listened to, and crucially acted upon, is a programme we call Lancashire Talking. Lancashire Talking gives you a voice in how we prioritise our Neighbourhood Policing activity.
By answering a few simple online questions, you can tell us what it is like to live in your area and let us know what issues matter most to you. It is also an opportunity for you to raise any concerns you may have. You will then receive updates from your Neighbourhood Policing Team about the action taken based on the feedback you give us.
Make your voice heard: Take part in Lancashire Talking
Here are some examples of the difference your feedback through Lancashire Talking has made:
- As a direct result of a concern raised about road safety and speeding in Bispham, patrols have regularly been out with the speed gun on Devonshire Road, with over 100 vehicles being checked and several tickets issued for speeding offences
- Following feedback provided in Burnley, a drugs warrant was executed at an address on Kime Street where a quantity of drugs were seized and safeguarding issues relating to young people at the location were addressed
- Within 24 hours of discovering activity on a stolen credit card, three people were arrested in relation to vehicle crime offences in Fleetwood and Cleveleys leading to a significant reduction in this type of crime
- The Neighbourhood Policing Team from the Bankhall area of Burnley received reports of persistent anti social behaviour via Lancashire Talking at an address on Holly Street. As a direct result of information provided by you, the occupant was issued with a Community Protection Notice and the incidents have subsequently reduced significantly
