Shirley and Freemantle Police Local Neighbourhood

The Shirley and Freemantle neighbourhood is situated within the city of Southampton and is policed by the Hampshire Constabulary.

Your local Neighbourhood Policing Team are working with the community to tackle quality of life issues, protect the vulnerable and crack down on persistent offenders.

We work with the community through regular Priority Setting Meetings, where the local issues and concerns are raised, and these become priorities for your local officers to tackle. We also work with other agencies such as Southampton City Council to reduce offending and anti-social behaviour.

This site will give you a brief overview of our current priorities, and when the next public meetings are, as well as what we are doing to tackle offending in your area.

If you wish to contact the team, please feel free to contact us on 101, via Twitter @ShirleyPolice or by email at shirley.snt@hampshire.pnn.police.uk.
