A NEW frontline policing team has taken over the reins for Lowestoft and Waveney.
Detective chief inspector Andy Quantrell has been promoted to the new role while also being appointed as crime manager for Waveney and Suffolk Coastal. He previously worked as detective inspector overseeing the Waveney district support team and prior to coming to Suffolk worked for Norfolk Constabulary.
“I'm looking forward to the challenges of my new role and with working with the small but dedicated team of detective inspectors who cover Waveney and Suffolk Coastal,” DCI Quantrell said. “One of the key areas for us at the moment is improving the service we provide to victims of crime and witnesses and we are also focussing on tackling issues such as domestic abuse.
“Officers across Waveney and Suffolk Coastal have achieved some excellent results over the past few years and we will be looking to build on this good performance.”

“We had a 35pc detection rate at the end of May and a 9.1pc decrease in crime in the past year as there were 850 less victims in the Waveney district,” he said. “I've thoroughly enjoyed my time here and I wish Darrell and Kerry all the best.”
Now the aim for DI Skuse and DI Pauling is to build on this success.
