About Gwent Police
Gwent Police (Welsh: Heddlu Gwent) is a territorial police force in Wales, responsible for policing the local authority areas of Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Newport and Torfaen. Gwent Police currently employs 1,204 officers, 649 civilian staff and 217 Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs).
Gwent Police's Neighbourhood Policing has been organised into two Local Policing Areas (LPAs) one in the East, covering Newport and Monmouthshire and one in the West, covering Caerphilly, Blaenau Gwent and Torfaen.
These divisions are run practically independently, controlled by a Chief Superintendent. Both contain three departments, each under a Chief Inspector; CID, Neighbourhood Operations (providing community officers and local response) and Neighbourhood Support (including traffic and public order teams, among other things). However, there are still some departments that cover the whole force, including the dog section, rural crime team, and training functions. The force has its headquarters at Croesyceiliog in Cwmbran.
