Spring sees pedal powered police

NOW that Spring is nearly here, officers will be using pedal power to get around in the upper Calder Valley.

More officers from the Upper Valley Neighbourhood Policing Team will be out and about on mountain bikes in Todmorden and Hebden Bridge in the coming weeks.

A police spokesperson said: “The great advantage of using mountain bikes is that officers can reach those parts of the valley which prove problematic on foot or in vehicles.

“Our officers are also much more accessible to members of the public.

“If you see them out and about, please flag them down and let them know any police concerns you may be experiencing in your area.”
