The Police

Longparish is the responsibility of the Hampshire Constabulary based at Whitchurch. This station is not fully manned, and is currently open to the public morning and evening. The police constable with special responsibility for Longparish is based at Hurstbourne Tarrant. Telephone 999 in any emergency. For routine matters, try the Whitchurch number, and if it is not answered, ring the Andover station which is manned around the clock. Numbers are in the Directory section.

Lost Property is based in Andover.

Neighbourhood Watch

Longparish takes part in the local Neighbourhood Watch scheme under the direction of the Hampshire Police stationed at Whitchurch (tel. 01256 895096). The object of the scheme is to assist the police in preventing crime or apprehending offenders by observing and reporting unusual events and the suspicious behaviour of individuals. Recording car numbers can prove useful. Please ring 999 if you see anything that might need investigation, and keep your Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator informed. Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinators are located throughout the village. It is useful to inform them if your house is likely to be unoccupied for any length of time.
