BOBBIES on the beat will be catching buses in and around Great Yarmouth to prevent passengers becoming unruly.

Uniformed officers will travel on First buses, making passengers and drivers feel safer, particularly when drivers encounter troublesome passengers smoking or drinking alcohol or acting in an anti-social manner such as playing loud music on an MP3 player and becoming abusive when asked to turn it down.

A police spokesman Jon Smith added it was also a quick and convenient form of travel for officers on foot to get to another part of their beat area without the expensive use of a vehicle.

Members of the Cobholm and Southtown and Southern Villages safer neighbourhood teams will regularly be seen by passengers on local bus routes in their area.
