MOD Police branch shuts
12:00pm Wednesday 18th September 2013 in News
MOD Police Officers who have for years been sharing some of the community policing workload with Wiltshire Constabulary colleagues are to disappear from Tidworth in November.
Tidworth police sergeant Martin Phipps told Ludgershall Town Council that the MoD Police neighbourhood policing branch is being closed down with the force concentrating on protecting bases like Aldermaston.
“We will have to meet the workload,” he said.
In the past the MoD Police were high profile in the area running a popular anti-drugs programme called DARE.
