This week, as part of our month-long On The Beat campaign, we will be looking at how the public can help play a key role in policing, including what you can do to support us and reduce your risk of being a victim of crime.
This month the county-wide campaign 'On the Beat' gives us the chance to tell you a little bit more about how local policing works in Wiltshire. Acting Inspector for Swindon South Community Policing Team, David Tippetts tells us why Community Policing is more than just Wiltshire Police.
It is widely known that police forces across the UK are facing unprecedented challenges, trying to do more with ever fewer resources. As part of our On The Beat campaign we asked our Community Policing Teams what they would like to tell the public about policing in Wiltshire.
