Chief Constable Nick Dean said: "Neighbourhood policing is at the heart of everything we do and building trust and confidence with our communities is vital in helping us to prevent crime and bring offenders to justice.
"I was determined to increase our neighbourhood policing offer here in Cambridgeshire and I'm pleased to see the second tranche of officers now being posted to their new roles."
The officers have been placed in March, Wisbech, Ely, Cambridge, St Neots, St Ives and Peterborough.
In addition, under the neighbourhood policing structure, the forces 'Impact' teams and 'Community Action' teams, who tackle local issues, will also benefit from the increase.
