It is difficult to believe that 2010 is already upon us, with routines returning to where they were prior to the festive period. Most of my team have managed a bit of time away from work with their families, and now return to work to face the many challenges ahead.
One piece of news is a change in the police sergeant for your area. I am pleased to introduce Sgt Nick Mortimer, an experienced police officer, who is the full time permanent replacement for Steve Lynn, and more recently Rod Troake who was with us temporarily. Both Rod and Steve have taken up new challenges in the force and I wish them well. I hope that Nick will bring us some stability at sergeant level, to assist me in moving Neighbourhood Policing on during the coming months.
Format of police reports
You will note that I have altered the format of these reports. The reason behind this is to tie it in with our internet, so that the same information can be supplied to all of our communities.
One really important section is that of local priorities and action taken. As a police service we have traditionally set the priorities ourselves for policing your communities. We have significantly altered how we set priorities and now fully take into consideration the views of local residents. I feel that the parish/town councils have a significant role to play in this area, by contributing to the policing priority setting for your area. We will then pledge to feedback any action we have taken to address local issues.
I also ask that you distribute these police reports in whatever format you see fit to your local communities.
Please feel free to give me some feedback of the content of the new style report.
