The Parish of Brizlincote is policed by a team of local police officers and police community officers who work specifically within the Brizlincote Valley, Stapenhill and Waterside area of the Burton Neighbourhood Policing Unit.
The team is made up of police sergeants, constables, police community support officers (PCSOs) and special constables, who work closely with the Brizlincote Parish Council to ensure a good quality of life for the residents.
Burton Neighbourhood Policing Unit is part of the Trent Valley division of Staffordshire Police.
Partners and Communities Together (PACT) Meetings gives you the chance to influence what happens in your neighbourhood. PACT is a mechanism whereby issues identified through PACT meetings in your neighbourhood, are taken to a PACT partnership panel where courses of action are agreed.
At the PACT meeting you can tell your Neighbourhood Team what issues concern you, and the if several issues are voiced a vote is taken to decide which issues will be dealt with by the panel. There are representatives from Staffordshire Police, Trent and Dove Housing, East Staffordshire Borough Council, and Brizlincote & Stapenhill Parish Councils. After the meeting, a smaller group called a PACT partnership panel decides on how they will work together to resolve the neighbourhood priorities. The Neighbourhood Team reports back to the next meeting on progress. PACT meetings are open to anyone, and are held quarterly at the Hill Street Health & Wellbeing Clinic, Hill Street, Stapenhill.
