CAMBS: Chief Constable committed to frontline policing
The Chief Constable of Cambs Police has outlined his commitment to frontline policing and reiterated his determination to keep people safe in an annual report published today (June 29).
The 2011/12 report, which includes a foreword by Chief Constable Simon Parr, sets out a wide range of ways in which the force has met the priorities set out in Cambridgeshire Police Authority’s 2011-2014 Local Policing Plan.
In the foreword, Mr Parr refers to the “radical changes” the force has undergone in the face of “unprecedented financial pressures”, but also outlines his commitment to frontline policing and determination to keep people safe and continue the fight against crime.
Other sections are dedicated to Operation Redesign - the restructure of the force - crime and disorder operations, major crime convictions, serious and organised crime and the roads policing unit.
Mr Parr said: “The contents of this report, alongside the annual crime figures, should provide reassurance for the people of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, that, despite the financial context, we are doing everything we can to make the county safer.

“However, we must not become complacent as we face further budgetary challenges in coming years and we will monitor our performance closely.
“I would encourage people to have a look at the report, which I hope gives an insight into the amount of policing across the county and reassures readers that we are relentlessly targeting those who commit crime.”
