New team ar­rests

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

CAM­BRIDGESHIRE po­lice’s Tac­ti­cal Team has made 58 ar­rests since it be­came op­er­a­tional six weeks ago.

The Hunt­ing­don-based team, a first for the force, is made up of an in­spec­tor, three sergeants, 28 con­sta­bles, a PCSO and Spe­cials.

The team moves around the county tar­get­ing dif­fer­ent crime is­sues and re­spond­ing to lo­cal need.

Since it launched on April 2 the team has pro­vided sup­port to each of the six dis­tricts in Cam­bridgeshire in the form of tar­geted pa­trols and war­rants.

It has car­ried out 39 search war­rants, sub­mit­ted more than 240 items of in­tel­li­gence and given out 43 cannabis warn­ings.

Team leader Insp Ian Ford said: “In just six weeks the tac­ti­cal team has been able to make a sig­nif­i­cant im­pact on tar­get­ing lo­cal crim­i­nal­ity and sup­port­ing the force with emerg­ing crime pat­terns.

“There have been a num­ber of war­rants ex­e­cuted and nu­mer­ous ar­rests, which is ex­actly the type of work the public can ex­pect.”
