Praise for police
SIR - A lot of bad press is given to the police forces all over, but not enough praise is given. I recently had my dog, Biscuit, taken from my home and yhe Bideford police officer and CCTV teams were brilliant. Along side their other duties they kept me
SIR - A lot of bad press is given to the police forces all over, but not enough praise is given.
I recently had my dog, Biscuit, taken from my home and yhe Bideford police officer and CCTV teams were brilliant.
Along side their other duties they kept me informed of sightings of her and I eventually got her back. A caring member of the public recognised her and returned her home safely to me.
The police officers from Bideford have approached me now and again to inquire about Biscuit and as I live in a street that is not covered by CCTV (why I do not know as it is part of the Heritage Trail) in Bideford the local WPC and other beat officers have arranged for cars to come down the street at different times, hoping that this will deter the young louts who take a delight in banging on windows and doors of people's homes. and hide away getting drunk

The Bideford police have a lot to contend with and I would like to say a big thank you to them for their caring and professionalism.
