About Gloucestershire Constabulary

Gloucestershire Constabulary police Gloucestershire which is a rural county covering 1,041 square miles. Its population of 605,000 is concentrated in the urban centres of Gloucester and Cheltenham and has an older than average demographic. The greatest ethnic diversity is in Gloucester (10%) and eight of its neighbourhoods are amongst the most deprived nationally. A third of residents have limited access to transport.

The county houses royal residencies, the Allied Rapid Reaction Corps and GCHQ. These increase potential physical and cyber security threats requiring the retention of additional firearms capability.

The National Hunt Festival and Royal International Air Tattoo attract over 370,000 visitors annually. These events require mobilisation of significant policing resources.

The city of Gloucester has commercial quays, an urban night-time economy and fast-growing ICT and finance sectors. There are 3,300 miles of roads, incorporating the M5 corridor. The student population exceeds 13,000.

Gloucestershire Constabulary crime rates are low compared with forces comparable to Gloucestershire. The volume of recorded crime has increased by 16% in 2015-2017, however this is below the national increase. There are approximately 157,000 incidents annually, with high demand around violent crime, theft and sexual offences.

The operational structure of Gloucestershire Constabulary has recently evolved to deliver Initial Investigation Teams within the Force Control Room, dedicated Neighbourhood Policing capability, Force Response Unit and Local Investigation Teams. All are supported by a centralised custody suite and investigations facility, plus serious/complex, digital and public protection hubs including MASH)

The Gloucestershire Constabulary Crime Harm Reduction Team work with local partnerships to tackle gang violence, anti-social behaviour and the safeguarding of vulnerable people, for example The Aston Project and Project Solace.
