This is something of a balancing act. Like most people I’m reassured when I see someone out and about regularly in police uniform. I don’t want to see a uniform on every street corner or even every day, but I do want to see one regularly as it makes me feel good about the area. The other side of the balance is that local people want my team to be patrolling in places and at times when they’re most likely to prevent crime happening or to catch criminals. That may be at 11am when many people are at work, or at 3am when many people are asleep in bed. In that case we shall not be seen by most people.
