As with all villages in the rest of Suffolk, the way that Kedington is policed has changed. The St. Edmundsbury Rural South Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) is now responsible for providing police presence in Kedington, Hundon, Clare, Withersfield, Wickhambrook, Cavendish and Chedburgh. The lone Community Policeman is no more.
The team works out of Clare police station and can be contacted by telephone on 01284 774100 or dial 101 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
These folk will be backed-up by police response teams from Haverhill and Bury St. Edmunds.
If you have an issue that you wish to have brought to the attention of the SNT, please contact them direct or via a member of the Kedington Parish Council.
Each month, there is an opportunity for issues to be raised at the Tasking Meeting. So the SNT will be working closely with community groups, the Parish Council and Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinators.
