PC Poolman’s Announcement
It is with great sadness that I have to announce my retirement through ill health from Hampshire Constabulary.
In 2012-2013 the results achieved in reducing both the crime figures and incidents of Anti Social Behaviour whilst working together with the Andover Town Businesses, licensed premises and retailers,in particular the ABAC members, during my year on the Town Centre Beat, will rank highly in my achievements during my 22 year career.
I feel privileged to have met and worked with some great people, all striving to ensure the town centre remains the heart of Andover.
I would like to wish you all success in the future and hope the crime rate remains low.
PC Mark Poolman (Retired)
