Nothe & Chapelhay

Find your neighbourhood

Welcome to the Nothe & Chapelhay Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) who cover the Nothe, Chapelhay and Rodwell areas. We conduct regular patrols on foot, cycles and in vehicles so we are accessible to the people that live, work and visit the area. 

Through our engagements we are a victim focused team and work closely with partner agencies to help resolve the policing priorities of the local community. 

We conduct a variety of different engagement methods, including face-to-face meetings, social media interaction (Facebook & Twitter), online live chat and individual contact when required. Please do contact us with any issues or concerns that you have in the area and we will endeavour to respond as soon as possible. 

We attend as many local events as we can to meet different people and provide updates on what the team have been focussing on and what issues are emerging, providing relevant crime prevention advice and reassurance. If you see us out on patrol, please stop and have a chat or ask any questions that you may have.


Local priorities

Current priorities (last reviewed August 2018):

  1. Report and disrupt any drug dealing in and around Chapelhay steps.
  2. Listen to local residents and businesses to find the cause of ASB in and around the harbour and use Community Protection Notices and or Section 35 Notices to disperse the main offenders. 
  3. Patrol and deal with ASB in and around the beach and Sandsfoot Castle area.
