We are working hard to provide a visible and effective presence in your area and tackle issues at the heart of the community. You can help by reporting all and any relevant incidents or crimes.
Please follow Copeland Focus, our Facebook Group designed to improve engagement between Cumbria Constabulary and the public at https://www.facebook.com/groups/475035059651229/ or search Facebook for Copeland Police and click the link on that page to our group.
The way people communicate has changed, and now, more than ever, people want to talk to us online and through social media and we, as a service provider are looking to utilise and support this change. If you are seeking to report a crime you should not use social media to do so. Think of Copeland Focus Group as a virtual community drop-in desk, allowing local PCs and PCSOs to have an easy and continuous means of communication within the Copeland community.
Copeland Focus Group members will be able to post when issues or questions arise, helping us to identify their concerns and priorities, and we will be able to quickly and efficiently keep them informed as to how we are tackling and answering any questions.
In an emergency and/or where a crime is in progress, always call 999. If you are seeking to contact police for a non-emergency you can call 101 where you can expect to typically be speaking with a police officer in under five minutes or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Non-urgent crimes or incidents can be reported online via our website at www.cumbria.police.uk.
If you wish to give information or intelligence it can be passed to 101 by telephone or email or use the online reporting tool mentioned above. You can also call Crimestoppers, an independent charity which helps people speak up and stop crime, and give information anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or by visiting https://crimestoppers-uk.org/give-information .
