Highbridge police pod re-launched for busy summer ahead

Highbridge's community police pod has been re-launched this week ahead of a busy summer of special events.

Located in the car park at the town's Asda supermarket, the Pod was initially opened in 2009.

It is staffed by police volunteers who have had appropriate training to provide a professional and efficient level of service.

Any queries, concerns and intelligence can be passed confidentially to them, with the local beat team being made aware as necessary. They also provide the public with crime reduction information.

PCSOs Sarah-Jane England and Pete Williams, who are covering the Highbridge beat, are introducing new beat surgeries at the pod with a monthly crime reduction theme.

There will also be events throughout the summer where residents can get bicycles and mobile phones securely marked.

Sarah told "We want to provide as much opportunity as we can for the community to be able to contact the Police and let us know what’s going on in their area so we can focus our efforts on maintaining a safer, stronger neighbourhood."

The pod's opening hours are Monday (closed), Tuesday (3.45pm-4.45pm), Wednesday (10am-noon), Thursday (2pm-4pm police surgery), Friday (closed), Saturday (9am-10am) and Sunday (bi-weekly 2pm-4pm). August's theme will be Cycle Theft & Security Marking.
