The new Suffolk Constabulary Locality Inspector for Haverhill, Danny Cooper, will be available to answer questions on the policing in the area at a public event next week.

The meeting had initially been planned for March but had to be rearranged and will now take place at 7pm on Wednesday, April 20 at Samuel Ward Academy, in Chalkstone Way.

Insp Cooper took up his new post as Locality Inspector for Haverhill and Sudbury after the new model for policing in Suffolk was launched on Monday, April 4.

He replaced Inspector Peter Ferrie, who had been in charge in Haverhill for more than four years but has now transferred to Bury St Edmunds.

The re-designed model has been agreed as a result of the Suffolk Local Policing Review, and will enable the Constabulary to respond to the changing nature of crime, with resources located according to demand.

The new model has seen the county divided into nine localities, each led with an inspector, who will oversee the work of Safer Neighbourhood Teams and emergency response officers within their area.

Three Superintendents will oversee this work, being responsible for the East, West and South of the county.

The event at Samuel Ward Academy is one of a number to have been arranged across the county to allow members of the public, partners and members of the media to meet their new Locality Inspector and to hear about how teams will be working within local communities.

Those attending will also have the opportunity to ask questions and to comment on policing in their area under the new model.
