Email recieved from PS Dave Lockwood, South Kirkby Police Station

I am the NPT Sgt for this area and I was on the ground in one of the beat cars throughout this incident (WS125) and was in communication with you throughout this.  I just want to personally thank you for this.  This was a brilliant display of team work from Patrol, Neighbourhoods, FSUP, DCR and of course NPAS.

This is an excellent result and will go a long way in restoring public confidence in us.  On the day you and your colleagues were outstanding and you should all be extremely proud of yourselves.

This is a difficult issue to crack but we are now making some real progress.

This individual caused havoc last week when he ran onto train lines after me and my npt officers were pursuing him on foot for offences he was wanted for.  He delayed 16 trains costing network rail a considerable amount of money.  Last night I liaised with BTP and I am pleased to say we have been able to charge him with this as well.  He was subsequently remanded for court.

I would like to think he will get some time for this!

I have copied my SLT into this message who I know are also extremely grateful for your support and this fantastic result.
