THE thin blue line in Boston just got a bit thicker – with the appointment of six new police community support officers (PCSOs) to the area.
The new recruits to the local neighbourhood policing team (NPT) will bring an extra presence to the streets and enable the team to tackle more lower-level crime.
Their role incorporates a variety of policing issues, such as tackling anti-social behaviour, parking and alcohol offences, cycling on footpaths, littering, truancy and responding to concerns from members of the public.
“The six new PCSOs give us the opportunity to deliver neighbourhood policing with even more of a community focus, which has always been our aim,” said Sgt Mick Cordwell, of Boston Police Station.
“We’re now at full strength for our neighbourhood policing team with a total of 13 PCSOs for the borough.”
Residents can join their local neighbourhood panel to discuss issues with the NPT, who will look to resolve them.
