The policing team is based at Stowmarket Police Station, from where the officers cover a large part of the Mid-Suffolk District. This is the Safer Neighbourhood Team which is the team covering Thurston and works with the parish of Thurston and partner agencies in our community to identify and address local concern.
Thurston currently has an agreement with Suffolk Constabulary for a fully funded Police Community Support Officer for a contract of 2 years commencing 1 April 2023.
PCSO 3362 Matthew Brown is the PCSO with dedicated responsibility for covering certain duties within the parish of Thurston.
These duties will cover the following roles:
This fully funded PCSO is in addition to the current establishment of local SNTs and help to strengthen not only the teams, but also the partnerships that exist between other organisations and the police. They are deployed to serve the community but also have specific duty to meet the requirements of the partner agency/business.
Should you need to get hold of PCSO 3354 Swain or Stowmarket SNT please call 101 for assistance.
A reminder that Suffolk Police have a dedicated webpage for crime prevention with helpful factsheets that the community can have access to.
