New police sergeant

Cllr Acton and I, Revd Robin Sims-Williams from St John’s Church, Clare Hardy from WCC Community Protection, Chris Peers from the Paddington BID, and Sgt Ken Taylor got together yesterday for one of the regular meetings on the vice problem in streets near the station.
We were very impressed with the work that Sergeant Ross Hickman, new to the area, and his team have been doing. The issue has been given a higher formal priority, the detection rate is up, and there have been 20 arrests and 60 cautions in our area in the first four months of this year.
