Received from Chief Superintendent Russell Nyman:

A lot of you may have noticed this week many of my officers have been walking around in high visibility jackets and many of you have asked if there is a serious incident taking place in your area.

Whilst there has been no serious incident what has happened is that you have clearly noticed my officers patrolling your streets and providing reassurance.

I know most of you want to see more of a visible police presence in your area. Seeing police officers or PCSOs on the beat does reassure people and clearly demonstrates that officers are out on patrol.

The introduction of wearing high visibility jackets not just at critical incidents but throughout their shifts is designed to help improve the contact we have with you….. its introduction this week sends a very clear message to criminals who may have the perception that they can commit crime and not be apprehended.

I myself was out and about on patrol this week and it is important for you to see a visible policing presence on the streets of Lewisham which is why this has been introduced.
