Dalton's policing team wants to hear from YOU.
Patrol Sergeant John McIntosh manages Dalton's 10 PCs.Sgt McIntosh said: "I have 23 years service and I have no doubt some of you will remember me from the ten years that I worked in the town as a constable between 1989 and 1999.
"I took up my present role at the end of April 2008 and working with the other members of the team have aimed to deliver a high standard of policing to the area that aims to make Dalton and its surrounding area a safe place to live.
"The last 12 months have reflected this with reported crime of all types reducing together with a reduction in anti social behaviour. This trend can be continued if we all work together and as a result can I urge you to report matters of concern to the police. I can be contacted on 0845 33 00 247."
Community Sergeant Stuart Flett is responsible for managing Dalton's team of PCSOs:
John McVea (Dalton South)
Louise Perry (Dalton North)
Sgt Flett said: "Two years ago I took up the position as a combined response and community based supervisor for Dalton. "Neighbourhood community based policing was experiencing a revival and over that period I have been fortunate enough to see the process developing and expanding."I am keen to promote and build relationships with residents and other partner agencies to help tackle the issues and priorities that matter most to them."
PCSO John McVea is responsible for Dalton South - bordered by Market St, Broughton Rd moving south towards Ulverston Rd to Greystone Estate and then on to Newton Village.
