Officers from Nottinghamshire Police take on Bridge Beat Cycle Patrol revisiting victims of crime
Officers from Nottinghamshire Police took on the Bridge Beat Cycle Patrol last week revisiting victims of crime.
The cycle team rode around the Bridge ward in Newark in a productive effort to gather information.
Officers spoke to the general public to reassure victims of crime and cement people's confidence in the police.
PCSO Andrew Mighall said: "The bikes are a fantastic way of getting around the Bridge Ward. Not only can you engage with more of the public, which is vital for offering reassurance and gathering intelligence, but also you avoid the traffic.
"Visiting victims of crimes and being able to speak with them helps not only in reassuring the person involved, but also with public perception and confidence in the police. One of the main reasons for doing this is to help the public feel more confident in reporting crime."
