New bobbies on the beat in Rugby

NEW BOBBIES are on the beat in Rugby town centre.

The town’s police force has appointed PCs Aimee Jarratt and James Bonsor to patrol the town centre – and their commander says their presence is already making a difference.

Insp James Rankin said: “Increasing the visibility and activity of patrols in the town has been a priority for the borough police team and we are building our resources accordingly.

“The Town Centre Beat Managers are a significant part of the team that keeps the town centre safe. If you see them on their patrols I’m sure that they would be happy to answer any questions or help you in any way they can.

“We have already seen the positive impact that their work can have and I’m looking forward to seeing more arrests and a reduction in crime as a result of their appointment.”

Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Seccombe said he was sure the new officers would help to improve responses to retail crime and anti-social behaviour.

He added: “These officers will provide the visibility in the town centre that retailers and residents have been calling for.”
