Mid Suffolk South Safer Neighbourhood Team is being joined by a new officer.
Pc Andy Martin will be joining the team on November 5 covering Needham Market and the surrounding villages.
Pc Martin joined Suffolk police in 2009 and was based at Ipswich and Stowmarket, with the majority of his time spent as a response officer for Mid-Suffolk.
Before joining the police, he studied Film and Television at Canterbury Christ Church University and previously worked as a radio producer and TV journalist.
Pc Martin said: “I am looking forward to the transition from response officer to SNT and the new challenges that it will bring.
“In particular, the opportunity of working with the local community and agencies to address both short and long term issues in the area in new and innovative ways.”
