Dr Dan recently met with Superintendent Martin Ransome at Ipswich Police Station to receive an update on the latest crime and policing issues in Ipswich. Our local policemen and women play a vital role in looking after residents in Ipswich and Suffolk and are always prepared to put themselves in harm’s way to protect the public, their property and local businesses from crime and harm.
Dan is proud that Suffolk continues to be one of the safest counties in England, and was particularly pleased to hear that crime is at its lowest level for a decade in Suffolk. Whilst there will always be challenges in a large county town such as Ipswich, Dan is confident that under the strong leadership of senior police officers such as Superintendant Martin Ransome, Suffolk will continue to be one of the safest counties in which to live and work and looks forward to working with the local police force closely in future.

Does he also recognise that CAMHS recruitment is a real challenge? The August 2019 fill rates for higher trainees in the UK stand at...
