We all want to live and work in a safe place with low levels of crime. Your Neighbourhood Policing Team here in Hayling is based in the neighbourhood police office within Hayling Island library. The team is here to listen to your concerns and act upon the issues that matter most to you, helping you to feel safer in your community.

But the most important thing of all, we need to look out for each other. Working together, we can build a safer community and fight crime. Being respectful of others, checking in on vulnerable and isolated people and supporting each other is key to fostering community relations.
