A day in the life of a Lancashire officer was on the agenda for the county’s Police and Crime Commissioner when he headed to Preston police station.
Clive Grunshaw has been visiting each of Lancashire Constabulary’s Base Command Units (BCUs) to see first-hand the impact the force restructure – which saw the Constabulary move from six divisions to three – is having on officers and staff.
In Preston he met some of the new South division’s best performing officers before going out on patrol to see what day-to-day life is like for one of Lancashire’s neighbourhood policing teams.
Mr Grunshaw said: “One of the best parts of my job is being able to recognise the excellent service Lancashire’s officers give to their communities, so I was delighted to be able to personally congratulate three outstanding officers
“I met with Det Con Mark Riley and Det Con Simon Lochhead in recognition of their work to bring a group of armed robbers to justice, and was also able to speak to Det Con Paul Mulrooney, about his role with the division’s reactive team, which saw him recently commended for his handling of serious and complex investigations. It is clear from speaking to all the officers and staff I met that they are committed to serving their communities, bringing offenders to justice and ensuring the best outcomes for Lancashire’s residents.”
