Cllr Jon Hubbard Emphasizes the Importance of Police Presence in Communities, Welcomes New Mobile Police Station Initiative

Cllr Jon Hubbard today highlighted the critical role of a visible police presence in ensuring the safety and security of local communities. In a statement, Jon Hubbard underscored the positive impact of community policing and welcomed the introduction of a new mobile police station, a significant step towards enhancing public safety.

"Ensuring the safety of our residents is a top priority," Jon Hubbard stated. "The physical presence of police officers in our neighbourhoods not only deters crime but also fosters a sense of trust and security among the community members."

The newly introduced mobile police station, a state-of-the-art vehicle equipped with the latest technology, will serve as a versatile tool in Wiltshire Police’s efforts to increase police visibility and accessibility. This mobile unit will be deployed across various locations within the county, allowing officers to respond swiftly to incidents, engage with the public, and address local concerns directly on the ground.

"This mobile police station is a game-changer for our community," Jon Hubbard continued. "It enables our officers to be more proactive and responsive, moving beyond the confines of traditional police stations and taking their services directly to the people. This initiative is about bridging the gap between law enforcement and the communities they serve, making our neighbourhoods safer and stronger."

Jon Hubbard also highlighted the broader benefits of the mobile police station, including its role in community outreach and engagement. The mobile unit will host regular drop-in sessions not only in Melksham Town but also in the surrounding villages where residents can meet with officers, discuss their concerns, and receive crime prevention advice.

"The relationship between the police and the community is the cornerstone of effective policing," Jon Hubbard added. "By bringing policing services closer to the public, we are not only improving safety but also building stronger, more resilient communities."

The introduction of the mobile police station comes as part of a broader strategy to enhance public safety and community well-being in Wiltshire. It reflects the Police, Wiltshire Council and the Town Council's commitment to investing in innovative solutions that address the unique needs of its residents.

"I’m delighted to see this initiative and look forward to seeing the positive impact it will have on our community," concluded Jon Hubbard. "Together, we can create a safer, more connected, and more supportive environment for everyone."
