Harbour police

The ports of Tees and Hartlepool have been served for over 100 years by a dedicated and professional Harbour Police force.

The Harbour Police operate 24 hours a day, 52 weeks of the year. The team of officers patrol the ports of Tees and Hartlepool, detecting crime and providing as safe an environment as possible whilst also protecting the Ports’ assets, personnel and commercial interests.

CCTV and the use of highly visible personnel promote the prevention of crime by removing criminal opportunities and increasing the risk of criminals being caught.

In support of Harbour Police crime prevention activities, the team of officers have established long standing relationships with external bodies. This strong local support ensures the safe keeping of Tees and Hartlepool enabling the officers to respond quickly and effectively to any incident.
