Deputy chief constable Alan Baldwin, detective inspector Jenny Bristow, detective sergeant Stephanie Calne, inspector Jayne Drury, PC Martin Drury and special constable James Keith left police headquarters in Huntingdon on Friday morning on the UK Police Unity Tour.

The group is aiming to raise £2,500 for the Care of Police Survivors (COPS) which aims to help officers’ families rebuild their lives.

The journey finished at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire where officers from across the county laid wreaths in remembrance of fallen colleagues.

DCC Baldwin said: “Policing is at times a dangerous profession and we are so very grateful for what COPS do to help those left behind.
