Local AM attends opening of the new base for Police in Prestatyn

Vale of Clwyd AM, Ann Jones, has welcomed the opening of the new base for Prestatyn’s Neighbourhood Police Team in the centre of the town.

2 Police Officers and a duty Sergeant together with a total of 9 PCSO’s, three directly funded by the Welsh Government’s 2011 manifesto pledge, will be based in the centre of the town.

At the launch of the new base, Mrs Jones said: “This is a great new opportunity for policing in Prestatyn.

“Having our officers based in the town centre minimises travel and maximises the time they can spend working directly with the community. It gives reassurance to Prestatyn and its surrounding communities of a speedy response to an emergency.

“North Wales Police should be very proud of the fact that there were 1,000 fewer victims of crime, compared with the previous twelve months, across Denbighshire. It is down to the hard work of all officers that has made our communities safer.
