East Division - Ashford and Shepway
The Community Safety Units (CSUs) for Shepway and Ashford deal with local crime and safety issues. Officers in the CSUs work alongside staff from other agencies, including Shepway District Council and Ashford Borough Council. They aim to create a safe environment for you by reducing crime and anti-social behaviour. Working alongside your local PCSO, the CSUs have an important role in community policing.
