Cambs Appointment System Extended

Doctor's surgery-style appointments, where victims of crime are asked to arrange a time to see a Police Officer, are starting in more parts of Cambridgeshire.

It's part of a scheme to make officers use their time more efficiently and spend extra time on patrol.

It has already been running at in Peterborough at Thorpe Wood Police Station, and in Huntingdon, March and Histon.

Now, victims of non-emergency crimes will be asked to make an appointment at a number of other police stations.

These include Bridge Street and Hampton in Peterborough, plus stations in Wisbech, St Ives, St Neots, Parkside in Cambridge and Ely.

Cambridgeshire Police say officers "will still carry out home visits where necessary".

Superintendent Mike Brown said: "The pilot is still in its early stages but it has been well received by the public so far and, on average, around a third of all slots have been filled on a daily basis.

We were always going to explore the use of other sites, by introducing the scheme to other stations it will make it more accessible for everyone living in Cambridgeshire."
