Letter of thanks to the team from Kent Police - August 2013

I wanted to put on record my thanks for the sterling work the Beach Pastors team are doing in Whitstable.

My officers and the public have all made comments about how great it is to see them out and about as they are a visible and very reassuring presence on the streets and coast line of Whitstable.

Just as important, they are making a big difference to the safety of the public by helping those individuals who are potentially at risk (aka the parable of the Good Samaritan) whilst reducing crime and ASB.

I know that this does not happen without the function of prayer and support hence why I wanted to thank the whole team here. Please pass on my thanks and I will look to try and get out on patrol with the Team in September.

Best wishes
Chief Inspector Mark Arnold
Canterbury District.
