As the sun comes out and more of us head to the river for a day, night or even a whole week of boating, Norfolk Police’s Broads Beat team will be on the water to ensure everyone is safe, secure and able to enjoy the vast networks of waterways.
With patrols in their Orkney Pilot 20 boat getting into full swing, we asked Broads Beat officer PC Paul Bassham to share his seven cultural picks
which keep him smiling on the water and off it.
The team has a number of roles on the Norfolk Broads, from giving water safety advice to those hiring boats, preventing anti-social behaviour and dealing with crimes, to taking part in searches for missing people, potential drownings and helping save lives on the water.
