Police who cover north Norfolk and Broadland are getting prepared for a seasonal switch to enable them to focus on theft of gardening equipment from sheds and allotments.
Supt Carl Edwards, who will shortly be heading to be commander of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk and handing over his area to Supt Stuart Gunn, said the change of season meant officers had to look at “different types of crime”.
He said: “It’s hard to believe apparently spring is here.
“For us that means looking at the types of crime and antisocial behaviour that change with the seasons and having plans in place to counter them.
“Each of the safer neighbourhood teams in Broadland and north Norfolk has a seasonally-adjusted plan that focuses resources where we need to be and when we need to be there.”
Supt Edwards added: “In the run-up to Easter we will be increasing our attention around thefts of gardening equipment from sheds and allotments, and checking on vulnerable victims and locations which have previously been targeted at this time of year.”
And he said: “Also, as we approach the Easter weekend, we will be putting in additional patrols around the towns and pubs and knocking on the doors of those that need a reminder to behave over the Bank Holiday.”
Terrorism returned to the streets of London today as two suspected Muslim fanatics butchered a man in broad daylight in the name of “Allah”.
