Michael Armstrong has significant experience in Her Majesty’s Prison Service and was a retained firefighter. He also served in the Royal Hampshire Regiment whilst Mike Cathcart has a background in education.” Malcolm continued: “We have a familiarisation and accreditation programme in place for them both, and I am sure they will receive a warm welcome from traders and residents alike. I expect them to be both patrolling ACSO’s Michael Armstrong & Mike Cathcart on foot and bike or using the Parish Council’s electric vehicle. We will have one of the greenest ACSO schemes in place in the whole of Hampshire! I do urge residents to engage with them and alert them to any safety issue they might perceive.
