Community Protection Officer spots wanted man

Friday 8 November


An Ashfield District Council Community Protection Officer (CPO) recognised a local male that was wanted by Police whilst on patrol in Sutton town centre.

The CPO, who shares the same radio system as the police, altered them to the man’s whereabouts resulting in him swiftly being arrested.

Theresa Hodgkinson, Ashfield District Councils Director of Place & Communities said “This reaffirms the continued success of the Integrated Service HUB where Council and Police officers work in partnership to continually service the needs of local communities”.
