Kent Police staff in Dover with help from 1st Battalion of the Royal Gurkha Rifles’ officers have helped get a residential area of the town looking spick-and-span for its community.

Community Liaison Officer (CLO) Tarn Clark and PCSO River Jarvis joined in the Community Clean-Up event in Burgoyne Heights on Saturday 20 November 2021.

Using equipment supplied by Dover District Council, CLO Clark and PCSO Jarvis worked with residents, the local Kent County Council warden and officers from the 1st Battalion of the Royal Gurkha Rifles to fill eight bags of rubbish.

CLO Clark said: ‘By doing these events, I can speak to people who might want to take the opportunity to raise any concerns they have but also by keeping a community tidy, we are helping to discourage criminal activity and anti-social behaviour.

‘I’m working with the Army Welfare Officer for the area with the view to planning future dates in the new year for more clean-up events and we are hoping to encourage more of the community to take part and help keep the area clean, tidy and a nice place to live.’
