has a specific beat code but is located within the Dyce Neighbourhood. In addition, the:
NORTH SEA A1Z
is obviously outwith any Local Authority Neighbourhood.
Prior to 1 April 2004, Aberdeen City comprised two Divisions of the Force. On that date, it became one Division and the Beat Codes changed to the above codes. The majority of the current beats closely resemble the old ones. One notable exception is Aberdeen City Centre which went from several small beats to one single beat – A4H.
No comparison should be made in respect of statistical information in respect of the old and new Beat Codes as most of the boundaries changed to closely reflect the boundaries used by the Local Authority.

This is a video I took earlier which shows one of the main territorial problems with industrial sites. There is no sense of community or connection between the businesses which fall under the each site. Each business should be promoting the site by displaying a communal title and logo in or around the individual business signs. This would help to increase the sense of community and ownership within these areas.
