Gavin Williamson, MP for South Staffordshire, joined Staffordshire Police for the day.
Commenting, Gavin said: "It was humbling spending time with Staffordshire Police for ‘Give a Day to Policing’. I have always respected the work of our police force in protecting our communities, and it was fantastic having the opportunity to join them for the day.The day involved seeing how day-to-day business is prioritised through daily management meetings, as well as discussing policing challenges with frontline officers.
I really enjoyed meeting our local PCSOs and seeing the vital work they do in our community, and speaking to them about their experiences and what motivated them to join the force. It was very valuable to learn more about the issues that my constituents face, and the way in which they are dealt with by the police. The experience has deepened the respect and gratitude I already have for our police and I want to thank them for allowing me to be part of the ‘Give a Day to Policing".
