Suffolk Police Sergeant Brian Calver has announced that he will be moving roles within the constabulary and will no longer oversee the rural policing team.

Sgt Calver has been involved with the policing of rural areas for more than six years.

In response to the news, CLA Rural Surveyor Tim Woodward, said:

“During his time with the rural policing team Brian has worked hard to build trust and respect within communities in Suffolk. He has always been willing to listen to our members’ concerns and has been a strong advocate for farmers and landowners in the county.

“At the CLA, we have established a good working relationship with him, and he has always been very approachable and helpful when we have raised issues with him.”

“We would urge the police to consider his replacement carefully and to appoint someone with equal passion and commitment for the role. It is imperative that rural policing remains a top priority for the constabulary.”
