Your Local Policing Area

Communities living in Mid & East Antrim District now have two Local Policing Teams (LPTs), based in Ballymena and Larne Police Stations, providing 24 hour cover to continue keeping local people safe right across the District. These officers will be supported by two Neighbourhood Policing Teams (NPTs), based in Ballymena and Carrickfergus Police Stations, which will be mobile and deployed to areas to deal with critical issues.

Our Commitment to your District

Mid & East Antrim police continually engage with the local community to ensure we are aware of the issues that matter to you. We do this with the support of the Policing and Community Safety Partnership, residents groups, and our daily interaction with local people. 

As a result of this engagement we have produced a local Policing Plan which allows us to focus more keenly on those issues throughout the next 12 months:


  • Reducing harm cause by crime and anti-social behavior
  • Supporting vulnerable victims of crime
  • Keeping people safe on the roads 
  • Focusing on priority offenders 


Mid & East Antrim police has been structured to allow us to allocate the most appropriate resources to areas of need, and structured in such a way that allows us to be flexible in the deployment of resources. This ensures that when the community is in need, your local police will be there to keep people safe.
