PANWA is organised into watches (the local groups that cover one or several closely located streets).

The watches are grouped in to sectors on a wider geographical area.

Each of these sectors is arranged in a telephone tree so that information about crimes or suspicious activity can quickly be disseminated to the neighbourhood.

Chief Inspector Clare Jenkins of Hampshire Constabulary gave a presentation to East Hampshire District Council on 21st September on current priorities and challenges and the work being done by the Police across the District. 

C/Insp Jenkins leads East Hampshire and Havant districts. She took up this role in late 2016. Her policing career, which began in the early 1990s, has also included work in safeguarding, custody investigation, Operation Fortress and the Operational Change Programme.

The presentation was detailed and of a very high standard and was very well received by the Council and which was followed by questions, all of which were handled very well. 

I am very fortunate to see more than most of our Police, wearing my Community Safety hat - we are very fortunate to have Hampshire Constabulary looking after our District.

Councillor Bob Ayer, PANWA.
