Police – Safer Neighbourhood Team

Local policing is provided through Safer Neighbourhood Teams made up of Police Officers, Police Community Support Officers, Specials and Police Support Volunteers.

Each team has a remit to solve problems identified by local people – which could range from crime and anti-social behaviour,  to speeding, noise and litter.

Barrow and Denham are policed by the St Edmundsbury Rural North Team consisting of:
Sgt 696 Kevin Jay
PC 161 Sheena Tate
PC 1251 Simon Collins
PCSO 3232 Ken Ruston
PCSO 3257 Hollie Cogman
PCSO 3268 Claire Teakle
PCSO 3267 Jade Morton

Whilst Sheena and Jade are your dedicated Officers please feel free to contact any of the team on 101 or e mail (any of the officers can be contacted  individually by using their name followed by the generic – ie to contact Sheena e mail

Public Priority Setting meetings are held quarterly. These meetings are open to one and all and are an excellent opportunity to come and meet your Team and have your say about how the 50 + villages in your Safer Neighbourhood Team  area are policed. The evening meetings are held on the  2nd Tuesday  in March, June, September and December 2013. Locations are published on the website and follow the links to your Safer Neighbourhood Team

Suffolk Police also provide Police Direct which is a high tech messaging service designed to bring you up to date information about crime and policing issues in our area. Information can be sent by email to your computer, by text to your mobile phone, or by telephone to your landline.

The service will give you:

•             Crime reduction advice
•             Updates from your Safer Neighbourhood Team
•             Latest details on major traffic disruptions

It’s free to join Police Direct and you choose how you want to receive the alerts, via email, text or phone or any combination of these. You can register up to three postcodes, which could include where you live, where you work and maybe where a relative lives.
