Letter: ‘In praise of our town’s police force’

I moved to North Walsham 12 years ago, because of the beautiful scenery, great local beaches but also because of the low crime in the region.
I went along to our Safer Neighbourhoods Action Panel (Snap) meeting recently and was pleased to hear, again, that there was such a low level of crime to report.
What really needs highlighting, though, is the great work of our local police in North Walsham.
PC Paul Gwynne reported that during December, the North Walsham police made patrolling in our Market Place shops a priority.
This resulted in zero shoplifting reports in the run up to Christmas.

This should be applauded.
It just goes to show that visible policing works.
- 1 Taxi driver beaten up in case of mistaken identity
- 2 Park-and-ride scheme plan for busy seaside towns
- 3 Concern over state of beach following £22m sandscaping project
- 4 Rats issue at coastal car park resolved
- 5 Sea sponge given name with a Norfolk twist
- 6 Pretty 16th century cottage with 'door that leads to nowhere' is for sale
- 7 Trees planted as part of community project
- 8 Mental health hospital owed £2m to staff and creditors when it shut
- 9 On the buses: Mobile Covid vaccination service is launched
- 10 Norfolk has no Covid patients in critical care for first time in six months
We must not let our police force be further decimated by short-sighted council budget cuts.
Let's all show support for our local emergency services.
