Thanking those who protect us

At a tough time for Cleveland Police, it was good to be able to thank Sergeant Whitlock and his team for the hard work they put in on our behalf at my surgery at Tesco Coulby Newham on Friday.

The men and women of the Force deserve our support and we had a good discussion about local policing priorities in Coulby.

Whatever else is going on, I know from experience that there are lots of very good and devoted officers in Cleveland and we are lucky to have them.
