The Durham Difference

As one of the top-performing police forces in the UK, here at Durham Constabulary we pride ourselves on doing things differently, and doing them well. 

When people visit Durham, they often comment ‘it feels different here’ – that is the Durham Difference.

Our philosophy is about being efficient, innovative and cultivating great partnerships which help with problem-solving.

Our staff are positive, optimistic, professional and committed to delivering the best possible service to the people of County Durham and Darlington.

The force is led by Chief Constable Jo Farrell and her Executive Team, based at our headquarters in Aykley Heads, Durham.
