WILTSHIRE SOUTH (SALISBURY) COMMUNITY POLICING TEAM
The Community Policing Team (CPT) model was rolled-out across Wiltshire Police in 2016. The new model brings neighbourhood policing, response teams and local crime investigators into a single team for a more effective approach to community policing. It means there is a bigger team of officers and police staff available to attend incidents and improves communication between teams and departments. Each Community Policing Team is overseen by a Superintendent with an Inspector and a deputy. The team is made up of a mix of police officers, community co-ordinators, PCSOs, civilian local crime investigators and Specials.

Wiltshire Police has a non-emergency number, 101. The roll out of this non-emergency number was part of a national programme to make it easier for you to contact your local police. 101 should be used for non-emergencies such as:
- contacting local officers
- getting crime prevention advice
- making the police aware of policing issues in your local area
- making an appointment with a police officer
- for any other non-emergency
- reporting a crime (unless crime in progress, when you should dial 999)
