Cambridgeshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Sir Graham Bright spent a day in March talking to residents about policing issues.

The commissioner was joined by Chief Inspector Mike Hills, Fenland Area Commander, other local officers and the Mayor of March, Councillor Kit Owen for his walkabout.

People were “very complimentary” about the standard of policing in the town but concerned about speeding and illegal parking, Sir Graham said.

He said: “I have done a number of these informal meetings in the last few weeks and again am extremely gratified by the positive feedback I get.

“The people I spoke to were very complimentary about local policing in the town and were delighted to see the officers and I making ourselves available to talk to.

“Speeding traffic and illegal parking are recurring themes but the overwhelming feedback was positive”

The March street surgery was the latest in a series held at different locations across Cambridgeshire.
