Two new interviews are now available to hear online from the 30th March 2016 edition of Ridgeway Magazine. John talked to Martyn Underhill, the Police and Crime Commissioner and the interview ranged in topics from policing in Dorset, the new “toys” our police are being equipped with which include drones, personal video cameras for officers, safeguarding children and the number one problem on the horizon, cyber crime.
For the first time we had two studio guests on the same programme. The second was Jill Withey who has been a Samaritan in Dorchester for almost 20 years. She talked about the need for volunteer Samaritans, their suitability and their training. The number one issue for the Samaritans is mental health – 20 years ago it was debt. Do you know that the Samaritans received over 5 million telephone calls in 2014 fielded by 21,000 volunteers.
