Consett neighbourhood policing team covers a large geographical area.
This is made up of 13 council wards, a mix of densely populated areas such as Consett, Leadgate, Delves Lane and Blackhill and the rural communities of Castleside, Cornsay and Burnhope.
The area extends from Hamsterley Mill in the north to Langley Park in the south, Holmside in the east to Waskerley and Muggleswick in the west.
The area has relatively low crime, although criminal damage is a particular issue. Consett town centre has a booming night time economy which contributes greatly to trade in the area, but can lead to anti- social behaviour and disorder. We are reducing this through positive and proactive policing.
