Police boss quizzed at panel meeting

Have your say

Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Hardwick faced questions about his plans to recruit volunteers for the force at a meeting in Weston.

Mr Hardwick and Spalding community policing inspector Jim Tyner were the guests of Spalding East Rural Community Policing Panel at Park Road Community Hall last Monday.

There was praise for area PCSO Bev Robinson and people were reassured about her role, despite plans for volunteer PCSOs to be recruited.

But a panel spokesman said: “People came away with a view very much against the idea of volunteering for the police and that it could leave things open for a less than satisfactorily performing police force in Lincolnshire.”
