Police Training Costs Money

One of our team priorities it to tackle anti-social driving across March, Whittlesey and Chatteris.

To help us do this to the best of our ability, we took part in a stinger training course last week and will now be equipped to deploy a stinger where needed.
A stinger is a hollow spike tyre deflation device which works by puncturing one or more tires of an oncoming vehicle when they are thrown into its path by an officer from the side of the road.
They are then quickly retracted before a following police car passes by.

They are designed to gradually deflate tires making it significantly
more difficult for a motorist evading police to continue driving.

This will be a great addition to have available and will help us to tackle anti-social driving and bring vehicles that make off from us to a stop in a safe manner 👍
