Covering a total of 449 square miles, its communities range from
some of the most affluent towns and villages in the country,
through to areas with some of the highest levels of social
deprivation in the region. Policing has to be delivered to rural

industry and commerce. We also have to be aware of cross border
crimes including anti-social behaviour, alcohol-related crime and
drug crime as we patrol the M6 and M56 corridors.
