Another picture of the Ware Rural Beat car taken at Widford on 30th June 1968 just twenty days after it became operational, replacing the three motorcycles used by outstation officers at Hunsdon, Stanstead Abbotts and Wadesmill.
The four original officers were PC Tony Elam (Hunsdon), PC Jim Warner (Wadesmill), PC Alan Richardson and PC John Weeks (Stanstead Abbotts).
A few months later Jim Warner was moved to a new police house at High Cross then, on buying his own house, was replaced by PC. Ted Thurgood. In December 1970 John Weeks transferred to the Somerset and Bath Constabulary.
