Hythe and Dibden Parish Council recently received a presentation from Superintendent Tony Rowlinson and Chief Inspector Rob Mitchell on the work being undertaken by Hampshire Police to enable them to be able to support the provision of additional PCSOs funded by community organisations.
Hythe and Dibden Parish Council has recognised the benefit that two additional PCSOs would bring to the communities of Hythe and Dibden and have set aside funding to fully resource two such officers.
Superintendent Anthony Rowlinson explained that he supported the proposed PCSO resource for Hythe and Dibden and he is committed to completing the reviews made necessary by the savings required by the end of July when he will be in touch with the Council to discuss the next steps.
Superintendent Rowlinson expressed his thanks to the Parish Council, especially the Clerk, for all the work in developing a standardised contract which will help in the future and will ensure consistency.
The Chairman of the Parish Council Cllr Maureen McLean said “I recognise the incredible efforts by Superintendent Rowlinson in considering the implementation of the generous offer to fund two additional PCSO’s to help the communities of Hythe and Dibden and I look forward to hearing from him by the end of July.”
Cllr McLean added “This Council is committed to providing this additional resource for Hythe and Dibden and if any person has any questions about the arrangements or the funding please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Clerk or myself."
