The Gwent Policing area is a combination of rural and urban. The road network carries large volumes of traffic including the M4 link to the South, with Gwent Police now responsible for policing the Second Severn Crossing.
Gwent Police has always been and continues to be, a safe place to live and work. Crime statistics are comparatively low and show we have an even spread of crime types across the county with each area bringing its own challenges and demographics.
As well as our frontline Policing teams we have a number of officers within specialist roles, including Scenes of Crime, Firearms Licensing, Researchers, Analysts and many more. We also have many business departments such as HR, Finance, IT and Legal Services.
