Strengthening ties with Staffordshire Police

Raising awareness about crime within Staffordshire, particularly amongst young people, and working with the community and other organisations on ways to reduce it, is a passion of mine and one I want to promote during my time as High Sheriff – so when I was presented with a chance to visit Staffordshire Police Headquarters, I jumped at the chance.

I was given a guided tour of the facility by Sergeant Adam Yates, which provided me with a greater insight into the work of our police force, the challenges they face on a day-to-day basis and how they are working towards a better future.  Adam introduced me to the Police Dog team, who demonstrated various skills of scent detection and attack.  I also toured the call centre to see where all the 999 and 101 calls are dealt with and finally the forensics department. 

I had lunch with the Chief Constable, Gareth Morgan, and talked about work he and his dedicated team do.

It was a privilege to be able to see behind the scenes of our local police force and it has given me an even greater determination to do all I can to help the future of Staffordshire.
