South Cambridgeshire’s new crime manager is hoping to reduce burglary and vehicle crime in the district.

Detective Inspector Mark Smith has taken over the role from Detective Inspector Ian Simmons.

“Our focus will be protecting the public, while dismantling and disrupting criminal activity,” he said.

“Crime investigation is a high priority in South Cambridgeshire, my teams will seek to investigate crimes thoroughly, identify those offenders responsible and bring them to justice at the earliest opportunity.

“As always, we need residents to work with us and I would urge anyone with any information about any crime in South Cambridgeshire to call police on 101.”
