West Yorkshire Police has now officially launched its new website for the Neighbourhood Policing Teams. Thanks to the Labour government’s investment in neighbourhood policing teams we now have an inspector leading a new and expanding community police team in Rothwell.
The direct link to the Rothwell page is http://www.wypnpt.org/NPT.asp?id=57
The full-time police officers are supported by a team of police community support officers who are proving very popular with most local people I speak to. The main criticism that I hear is that there still aren’t enough of them. The good news is that the number is increasing and should continue to increase.
The community police team in Rothwell is led by Inspector Vernon Francis supported by:
PS Paul Denison
PS Robert Berriff
PC Claire Rowlinson
PC Chris Johnson
PCSO Jonathan Smith
PCSO Catherine Wilson
You can contact them on 0113 282 2096.
The new Neighbourhood Policing Team website is in addition to the excellent www.beatcrime.info website which lets you type in your post code and see what crime has happened in your area.
