Mid Suffolk District Council has funded two Police Community Support Officers, PCSO 3036 Bill Butcher and PCSO 3352 Lizzy Porteous. Both work out of Stowmarket Police Station and are attached to the Safer Neighbourhood Team, and they cover around 75 parishes of Mid Suffolk to include Eye. Their time is split between Town and Rural which means you can expect to see them in the Eye area at least once a week. The days on which the PSCOs visit will vary and when in Eye their time will be spent on patrol providing a reassuring uniformed presence in the community. Areas that the PCSOs will be focusing on while on duty include:
- On-street parking; issuing of advisory notices, fixed penalty notices and looking into parking complaints
- Anti-social behaviour
- Reassurance and engagement
If you do see Bill or Lizzy out and about on patrol, please do stop and have a chat. Alternatively, if you have any concerns regarding issues in your community, please refer these to your Town Clerk at email@example.com who can raise a referral with MSDC so that the PCSO can then be tasked to look into this for you.
