South Norfolk MP Richard Bacon has met with Diss’s new police chief Inspector Adam Hayes to discuss crime prevention and detection in South Norfolk.

Originally from Norfolk, Inspector Hayes has been a policeman for 20 years, 17 of which were with the Metropolitan Police. He returned to Norfolk in 2003.

At the beginning of April, Inspector Hayes took over the Diss sector which covers Long Stratton, Harleston, Loddon and surrounding villages.

Although the Diss sector is the largest geographically, it has the lowest crime rate in the Central Norfolk division and one of the lowest in the country. Inspector Hayes intends to keep it that way.

Mr Bacon said: “I am very impressed with Inspector Hayes’s commitment to cut crime further. His no nonsense approach to tackling the anti-social behaviour which is plaguing Diss at the moment is good news”.

“I raised a constituent’s problem with anti-social behaviour with Inspector Hayes and was pleased to hear that it had been dealt with satisfactorily that morning. I shall follow future developments with interest”.
