Police put in new senior officers

Have your say

Spalding and other towns on the eastern side of Lincolnshire will be under the wing of a newly strengthened police leadership based at Boston.

Chief Constable Neil Rhodes has put in a chief superintendent and superintendent team to help boost the performance of the police and strengthen community ties.

The move follows a 14 per cent fall in crime across the county – with 5,000 fewer victims – in the first nine months of this financial year.

Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire Alan Hardwick said: “I fully support the new policing model and I have every confidence that, with goodwill and flexibility, it operate to the greater benefit of the force and the people of Lincolnshire.”

A similar team will cover the west of the county.
