Policing/Safer Neighbourhood Team/12PT


Policing in Kesgrave is managed by the Ipswich East Safer Neighbourhood Team. They are a dedicated team made up of police officers, police community support officers, special constables, volunteers and other organisations. They will all be working together with local people in their neighbourhood to improve their quality of life.

They are located at the Ipswich East SNT Base, 118 Heath Road, Ipswich IP4 5SP

Contact Details:

  • Tel: 101 (general 24/7 number) to report non-emergency crimes, disorder or anti-social behaviour or to speak to your local police officers. Calls from landlines and mobile networks cost 15 pence per call, no matter what time of day or the duration of the call. People who are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired can textphone 18001 101 or mini-com 01473 611160. Alternatively tel 01473 613500
  • Email: Ipswichne.snt@suffolk.pnn.police.uk

In an emergency you should of course always dial 999.

An emergency is where: life is in danger, a serious offence is in progress, a suspect is at a scene, an alleged offender is identified at any location, there is an imminent likelihood of violence/damage to a person’s property or there is a serious road traffic collision.

101 - the new number, should be used to report issues which don’t require an emergency response. For example, people should ring 101 if their vehicle has been stolen, their property has been damaged, they suspect drug use or dealing, if they want to give the police information about crime in their area; or if they would like to speak to a local police officer. Alternatively tel 01473 613500.

Please DO NOT RING 101 for noise nuisance, lost dogs, abandoned vehicles, fly tipping and littering, road problem (traffic lights not working, roadworks, debris in the road), mis-selling, litter/dog fouling, fraud and untaxed vehicles - see www.suffolk.police.uk/contact-us/101 for contacts for these.

Paws on Patrol

The aim of Paws on Patrol is to have dog owners register with the SNT and whilst out and about when walking their dogs, be the eyes and ears of our Communities and report any anti-social behaviour, suspicious persons etc to the Police, they are however advised not to get involved in any incidents!

To register or find out about the scheme please phone 101 and ask for the Ipswich East SNT officer.


Neighbourhood Watch

12PT (Twelve Parishes Together)

12PT is a group of partners working together with police at the SNT to improve the quality of life for the community in Rushmere St. Andrew, Kesgrave, Martlesham, Grundisburgh, Culpho, Tuddenham, Gt Bealings, Lt Bealings, Playford, Witnesham, Westerfield, and Swilland.

12PT members bring issues raised by their communities - or advised to them, to regular meetings to prioritise and tackle those specific issues.

It doesn't have to be a policing issue - it could be just about anything - but it will be prioritised. Often, a problem brought to the group can be tackled by one member of that group - or it may mean a bit of a team effort

Further details can be found on the 12PT website (currently not available).
