PS 0085 Simon Ellson

I joined the Constabulary in 2000. My first station was Stroud. I have worked in uniform policing all of my service and have worked in Cheltenham since 2003. I joined the SCT in May 2013. I, along with PS Julia Martin-Jones, supervise the SCT for the borough of Cheltenham. If you have a question, or would like advice, please contact your local officer, or myself. Thank you.

PC 0088 Ian Miles

I joined the Constabulary in 1994, starting at Cheltenham Police Station, working 10 years as an immediate response driver covering primarily Hesters Way, Whaddon and Leckhampton areas. I then became a community beat officer covering the communities policed from Leckhampton Police Station. Since the closure of Leckhampton Police station in 2011, I have worked from Cheltenham Town centre, responsible for policing Cheltenham.

PCSO 9044 Ken Bennett

I joined the Constabulary in 2004 and initially worked as a PCSO in Leckhampton and looked after Charlton Kings and Battledown. I joined the Community Team in 2011 with responsibility for the area of Tivoli and the Park. If you would like to ask a question, please feel free to do so via email by clicking here Kenneth.Bennett@gloucestershire.pnn.police.uk


Cheltenham South Weekly Newsletter

On a weekly basis PC Ian Miles compiles a report that is sent to over 600 key individuals and Neighbourhood Watch coordinators across the south of Cheltenham.

This Neighbourhood briefing details crimes of note during the last week, to raise awareness so that the residents can take the relevant actions to help prevent crime. It's also an opportunity for us to provide an update on some of the work that the Community Team are undertaking -

In order to access this document please go to the useful links page on the web site.

PCSO Bennett writes...

There have been a number of dwelling and non-dwelling burglaries in the Local Policing Area and I urge all residents to secure their homes when going out, gardening, moving to other parts of the house or retiring to bed. Currently 50% of all burglaries committed through unlocked and open doors & windows.

I would like to remind all residents at this time not to leave any item on display in their cars.  Please do not leave anything on show, such as sat navs, mobile phones or loose change. A jacket or blanket in the car looks to you like a blanket, but to a thief looks like a cover for something far more valuable.

It is very important that residents continue to be vigilant. If you have any suspicions or see something or someone you consider to be suspicious, please do not hesitate to report it on the non-emergency number. 101, or if you believe something may be in progress call  999.  

Be vigilant and look at your security from time to time being in the Neighbourhood Watch is a good start and if your road does not have one then you might be interested in starting a scheme yourself, more information can be found by clicking here.

Neighbourhood Watch will constantly have updates on security so please see the note the details below.

Also if you are finding it hard to do it yourself , the below Agency  is worth using for peace of mind about your security.

Safe at Home - a service for older and disable people across Gloucestershire

Safe at Home is the new county-wide Home Improvement Agency, to help vulnerable people to maintain their independence and continue living in their own homes. Gloucestershire County Council and its partners  have appointed local provider 'Mears' to deliver the service which will deliver home aids and adoptions, repairs and improvements, a handyperson service, (who can install new/additional locks and other home security measures), as well as give advice on funding and benefits that are available to people to help them stay at home.  If you are disabled, or over 60 and in receipt of means tested benefit, the service is usually free - if you are not, you can still use this service for a simple charge.

Neighbourhood Watch

I am very pleased to report that we are referring more and more people to our Neighbourhood Watch Field Officer who are interested in becoming Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinators, with a good mixture of age groups wanting to become involved.

We are currently short of a Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator for Tivoli street half the street is covered, but we and need someone to cover the other half of the even numbers in the street, if anyone is interested.

If you would like any information about Neighbourhood Watch, you can contact me,

Tivoli and the Park are nice areas to live and we want to keep it crime free.

So if your reading this web page I am speaking to the converted but it would be nice,  if we had more residents reading the web page and keeping in touch.

Therefore if you can play you part and talk to your neighbors and friends  in your community and get the message out there about our website,  its full of useful facts on policing and if you're talking to people  then you will build a community spirit in your street or road.

That will play a big part in stopping any strangers in the area intent on crime getting away with it.

Please contact me if you have any issues or ideas of how to make Tivoli and the Park a safer community, I will do my best to help.
