BLACKPOOL’S young volunteer police cadets welcomed the county’s Police and Crime Commissioner to the resort as they patrolled the streets helping to keep residents and visitors safe.

Clive Grunshaw joined the resort’s cadets on a crime prevention operation, which saw them visit car parks and check vehicles to ensure they were locked and secure, with all valuables out of sight.

The Commissioner said: “Too many people’s days out are ruined each year by leaving their car insecure and their valuables on display. Blackpool police cadets are working hard to support officers this summer and spread the message that both residents and holidaymakers can take steps to ensure they don’t become victims of crime.

“I’m delighted the cadets have been able to help ensure this vital community reassurance is carried out during the summer holidays, and they are playing an important role in proactively reducing crime in the resort and ensuring everyone enjoys their time in Blackpool.

“The cadets scheme is an initiative which has my continued support – these young people are excellent ambassadors for their local communities and their passion and enthusiasm is proving a real asset to Lancashire Constabulary.”

During his time in Blackpool on Monday (August 4) the Commissioner also visited officers and staff based at the town’s main Bonny Street police station as part of his commitment to visit each of the Constabulary’s three new Base Command Units (BCUs).
