With the Thin Blue becoming even thinner and the police getting a hard time and being told they should be out catching rapists and muggers, community policing was really put on display by an officer from Hampshire Constabulary this afternoon in Newport.
A distressed woman in her 60’s flagged down a passing Police van after her car got a flat tyre on Medina Way, Newport.
The elderly motorist roped in the taser carrying officer to help change her wheel.
The six foot officer removed the contents of the woman’s boot to find the spare.
Passing motorists who watched the drama honked in approval whilst the officer put the spirit back into Community Policing.
