INCREASED patrols and community engagement activities were high on the agenda for police across Fenland, as part of a week-long campaign which finishes tomorrow.
Police in Wisbech finish their week of action with a road show in the Market Place, while officers in the March sector held engagement activities with Trading Standards and the charity Age Concern.
Increased patrols in Wisbech also saw more than 40 fixed penalty notices issued to drivers parked illegally in the town centre, a shoplifter arrested and penalty fines handed to two men for urinating in public.
PCSO Sue Clarke, one of three PCSO's running the Wisbech operation, said: "The week has been very busy and was reliant on members of the public letting us know of anyone or any suspicious incidents in their area.

"On Monday we received a call from a disgruntled resident who is fed up with drunken people in his area. Two men were arrested and taken into custody, where they were given fines for urinating in public."
Wisbech police also teamed up with the fire service and Trading Standards to hand out security advice, security-mark mobile phones and sell Smartwater protection kits in the Horsefair Shopping Centre on Monday.
