Cumbria police receive crime fighting boost

CUMBRIA police have received the new keys for the latest tool in fighting crime in the south of the county.

DSG Morecambe Ltd have donated South Cumbria’s Community Safety Team a new vehicle that will be used to help prevent crime and disorder in the area.

The new Hyundai IX 35 Premium CRDI has been badged in the Cumbria Constabulary livery so that it can be identified easily by the community and will help the team visit residents in the most rural, isolated areas of South Cumbria.

This is the third occasion where DSG have donated a vehicle to the Force.

Crime Prevention Officer, Terry Belshaw, said: “We are extremely grateful for DSG’s continued commitment to the safety of the community. It is a gesture that symbolises how effective good relationships between Police and local businesses can assist in community safety.

“Our team works across South Lakeland to deliver important advice to help prevent crime.

“It is important to be able to be accessible to the people who live in the hard to reach areas of South Cumbria, and this new vehicle will enable us to visit areas more regularly and reach out to even more people.”

Will Adams, the Sales Director from DSG Morecambe Ltd, said: "The South Cumbria Community Safety Team fulfil a crucial role in rural South Cumbria and DSG are delighted to continue to support them with this their 3rd vehicle.

“The iX35 Premium offers an ideal mix of all terrain performance, comfort, safety and reliability making it just the right vehicle to meet the demands of the job whatever the driving conditions.”

The keys were handed over on Tuesday (July 15) by DSG’s Senior Sales Executive Dougie Stokes, whose dad George is a retired Cumbria Police officer.
