Under the new Safer Neighbourhood shift pattern, officers provide coverage seven days a week across their Neighbourhood. Coverage will be provided from 0700hrs to 2300hrs Sunday to Wednesday and 0700hrs to 0200hrs Thursday to Saturday. The 0200hrs can be moved forward to a 0600hrs finish if the demand justifies it.

In order to meet this extended coverage, the officers will be placed on to five leave lines on each neighbourhood, therefore three teams will be on duty on any given day covering an early shift, late shift and late-late shift whilst two teams are on rest days.
