More neighbourhood police officers are on their way to Wisbech.

They'll help to tackle local issues, build trust in the community and prevent crime in the area.

The 30 new recruits are joining those that started in September last year across Cambridgeshire after a week of specialist training.

Chief Constable Nick Dean said: 

"Neighbourhood policing is at the heart of everything we do and building trust and confidence with our communities is vital in helping us to prevent crime and bring offenders to justice.

"I was determined to increase our neighbourhood policing offer here in Cambridgeshire and I'm pleased to see the second tranche of officers now being posted to their new roles."

The officers have been placed in Cambridge, Ely, St Neots, St Ives, Peterborough, Wisbech and March.

Mr Dean added: 

"The work the first tranche of enthusiastic Neighbourhood officers have undertaken is already having a positive impact on the communities they serve. Whether this is managing high risk sex offenders, tackling county lines, hunting high harm criminals or recognising crime patterns and preventing further crimes, the good work is recognised and appreciated.

"We want to ensure our neighbourhood teams are accessible to, responsible for and accountable to their communities. They will be working to build trust, understand community needs and work collaboratively with partners, the public and communities to solve local problems, all the while being supported by a network of specialist policing services."
