  WILTSHIRE CONSTABULARY
TISBURY & MERE
Community Bulletin
MARCH 2002
Produced at Tisbury by PC Mark Steele.
 

WHO ARE YOUR LOCAL POLICE?

Sadly PC Paul CLARK (sometimes known as 'The Silver Fox') retired at the end of February and has moved on to something involving more sociable hours. Paul held the distinction of not only being the oldest PC at the Station but also the one with the fullest head of hair! We all wish him well for the future. His old beat area of Ansty, Newtown, Semley and Wardour has been incorporated into other beats as set out below. You will also note the arrival of three new names to the section. PC Paul WILSON has joined us from Wilton where he has been for several years, WPC Lucy DEAKIN arrives fresh from the hustle and bustle of Salisbury and PC Pete ROBINS escapes back into the real world from the training department at Police Headquarters.

So there you have it every village has it's own Community Beat Officer. If you would like to talk to your local beat officer about a local problem or even see him or her in the flesh please ring Tisbury or Mere Police Stations. If we are all out on patrol or dealing with incidents the answer machine will be on. Providing that it is not urgent and can wait please leave a message and you will be called back. If it can't wait then you have two further options. If it is an emergency or someone is in danger or a crime is being committed ring '999' immediately. If it is not urgent but you would like us to know about something straight away then ring the Police Control Room on 01722-411444. An operator can contact us on the radio and one of us can deal with whatever problem has arisen.

Please be aware that although we would all love to work non-stop, 24 hours a day seven days a week we are in fact only allowed to work 8 hours a day and we must take two days off for every five we work. We are also forced to go on courses, assist in other areas, are made to stay at home when we are not well and are even told to take holidays! But don't worry it's all worked out so that someone is on duty every day
