Could a PCSO be the answer to Haverhill town centre parking problems?
by Steve Barton 15 May 2014
A new solution to the continual parking abuses seen in Haverhill High Street could come in the form of a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) specifically tasked to deal with the issue!

The suggestion was mooted by Haverhill Police Inspector Peter Ferrie during a public meeting involving Suffolk’s Chief Constable Douglas Paxton and Suffolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Tim Passmore at Samuel Ward Academy on Wednesday last week.

The issue of illegal parking in the High Street was raised by Chris Cullum, who said a deterrent was needed to stop people doing it and asked Chief Con Paxton and Mr Passmore if pressure could be put on Suffolk County Council (SCC) to get more done.

“If we got someone who is robust enough and prepared to put the effort in I’m confident that if someone is going to keep getting £30 tickets, unless they’ve got an endless supply of money there’s going to come a point when they say enough is enough.”
