A specialist training course which saw Lancashire’s officers join forces with their neighbours to tackle wildlife crime has been praised by the county’s Police and Crime Commissioner.

Lancashire Constabulary and Cumbria police joined forces to deliver specialist training to 30 Wildlife Crime Officers from both forces at Lancashire’s Hutton headquarters, with support from the National Wildlife Crime Unit (NCWU).

Clive Grunshaw has made tackling rural crime issues a priority in his Police and Crime Plan, and was delighted to see the two North West forces working in partnership to take this commitment forward.

Mr Grunshaw said: “I am delighted Lancashire and Cumbria Constabularies have been able to make best use of their resources by joining forces for this training.I hope this training will enhance the service.”
