PS 1644 Julia Martin-Jones

I joined the Constabulary in 2003 and have worked in Cheltenham and the Cotswolds on the local policing team and on Response. I have lived in Cheltenham all my life and raised my three children here. I have recently joined the SCT and am enjoying meeting the community and working together in partnership in tackling local issues with local people and agencies. I truly believe that working in partnership is a way to resolve local problems and I look forward to meeting and tackling these issues within the community together.

PC 2120 Simon Silsby

I joined Gloucestershire Constabulary in March 2008 after starting my Police career in West Mercia Constabulary and initially worked as a PC based at Hesters Way. I joined the Community Team in August 2010 with responsibility for the area of Whaddon. As well as responsibility for Whaddon, my role has now grown to include the areas of Prestbury and Pittville.

PCSO 9220 Hayden Selwyn

My name is Hayden Selwyn and I joined Gloucestershire Constabulary in May 2007.  I was initially stationed at Whaddon Police station but I am now based at Lansdown Road Police Station where I have the responsibility of looking after the Prestbury community. I enjoy meeting and working with the local community and partner agencies and attending local events. I also help run the Gloucestershire Youth Mini Bike Project, a project for 6-16 year olds, where they are able to ride mini bikes in a safe, insured and controlled environment away from roads and public places.

Lock it or Lose it

A few tips to improve your home security:

  • It only takes a minute to lock your doors and windows to secure your home.

  • It only takes a minute to hide valuables out of view.

  • It only takes a minute for a burglar to enter your property and steal valuable belongings if your doors or windows are unlocked.

  • You should keep doors and windows locked, even when you are in the house and when you get home. Try to change your habit if you don’t lock your door behind you.

  • Door chimes and burglar alarms will deter a burglar from entering your property.

  • Being a victim of sneak-in burglary can have both emotional and financial effects. High value goods are costly to replace if stolen, and items such as phones and cameras often hold information with sentimental value such as photos, which cannot be replaced.

  • Many insurance companies will not pay out if your home has been burgled while insecure.

  • Keep doors and windows locked when in the garden having BBQs, gardening, hanging out the washing, etc.

  • Don’t leave garden tools or furniture outside, as they can be used by burglars to enter your property.

  • Dispose of packaging for expensive items properly; don’t advertise
    what is in your house.
