Dr Dan recently met with Superintendent Martin Ransome at Ipswich Police Station to receive an update on the latest crime and policing issues in Ipswich. Our local policemen and women play a vital role in looking after residents in Ipswich and Suffolk and are always prepared to put themselves in harm’s way to protect the public, their property and local businesses from crime and harm.
Dan is proud that Suffolk continues to be one of the safest counties in England, and was particularly pleased to hear that crime is at its lowest level for a decade in Suffolk.

Despite the cost of tickets from Ipswich, reliability and speed of service have not improved over the years....
