New Police Beat Surgery Launched at Supermarket

The Newport Safer Neighbourhoods team has started a new beat surgery at Sainsbury’s supermarket in the town. People will be able to meet and speak with an officer or police community support officer (PCSO) from 11am to 1pm every Wednesday. Police are dedicated to maintaining an active visible presence in every neighbourhood. We’re grateful to Sainsbury’s for this opportunity to be even closer to the heart of the community, where the public’s help is vital to keep crime levels low on our island. The force is always keen to explore extra interactive ways for local Safer Neighbourhoods teams to provide an excellent service. This weekly beat surgery is enhancing our contact with the public in the Island’s capital town.

The front office at Newport police station remains open to the public in the main High Street. You can phone us on 101, email us via [email protected] or find out more information by going online to a number of websites:,, and typing in your postcode. Mini-com users can phone 01962 875000. Information can be given anonymously by phoning the independent Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111. In an emergency, always dial 999.
