EO Snapshot East Coastal and Mid Suffolk 121120

posted 12 Nov 2020, 08:56 by Chris Hoare

EO Snapshot is a way for me to let you know what I and other local officers have been doing in your area, so please watch this space for further updates.

I have been on evening foot patrol recently with my Lowestoft counterpart, PC Yeldham, dividing our time amongst the towns in our areas. So far, we’ve visited Beccles, Bungay, Southwold & Debenham, the latter at the request of the Parish Clerk following reports of anti-social behaviour in the village.

These patrols were planned prior to the current ‘lock-down’, so they are not specifically targeted at compliance with Covid Regulations, but it was good to see in all the places we’ve been, that those who were about were complying. Speaking with those we encountered, all were happy to see us out & about and very supportive of Police efforts during these challenging times.

I’m happy to report that the only obstructive character we met was a belligerent badger, running in front of the Police car as we resumed from Debenham, refusing to move over to allow us to pass. Despite the reports of ASB in the village, this was the only ‘incident’ we witnessed!

On Sunday, November 8th, PC Yeldham & I were out early, laying wreaths at the war memorials in our towns. Assisted by colleagues from the Halesworth Safer Neighbourhood Team, we tried to attend those towns & villages where we normally lay a wreath as part of the Remembrance Day service. The early start was needed due to Covid Regs, in order to ensure we didn’t add to the numbers gathering at 11am.

We will be on evening foot patrol throughout the Autumn & Winter months, so do please say ‘hello’ if you see us.”

Until Next Time!
