Introduction to Cumbria Constabulary

Cumbria Constabulary currently operates with 1123 police officers, 95 PCSOs and some 101 Special Constables. There are approximately 580 police staff at the present time.

The style and approach to policing adopted by the Constabulary is reflective of the local environment and the County is divided into three Territorial Policing Areas (TPA): North, South and West. Crime Command operates at a force level and within the TPA’s, with several specialisms within the department.
