Profiles for Community Officers

Sergeant Richard Payne

I currently lead the community team that covers the North of the Cotswolds, which stretches from Northleach to Weston-sub-Edge.  I have been a Police Officer for 17 years and have previously worked in Cheltenham and Stroud in various roles.  Throughout my service I have predominantly worked as a response officer, and then as a shift sergeant.

It’s my role to ensure that we work with multi-agency partners and the community to reduce harm.  We will deliver a service that promotes public confidence and provides reassurance to the community.    

PC Jason Page

I have been a Police Officer with Gloucestershire Constabulary for 13 years, the last 4 being in the North Cotswolds working on the Response Team at Stow on the Wold.  I took over the role of Beat Manager for Bourton on the Water, Northleach, Andoversford and surrounds from PC Gary Brewer and am particularly enjoying getting to know each of these communities and working with our multi-agency partners.

PCSO Mel Oliveira

I first started in 2003 in Cheltenham having worked in Cheltenham Town centre and Hesters Way. I then moved to the North Cotswolds where I have committed my time to Bourton-on-the-Water and its parish. Our work has a vast range and I thoroughly enjoy working within the community and with our multi agencies. I am also involved with the distribution of the e-Horsewatch bulletin and offer security advice at your stables if required.

PCSO Brian Stagg

I am the PCSO for Northleach and Andoversford.  I have been a PCSO now over 5 years and work as part of the Community team for the North Cotswolds. I have a keen interest in being out on Patrol in the local community, being seen and keeping the public safe from harm.

Winter home security advice

Protect your home from burglars

As soon as the evenings get longer and darker, dwelling burglaries tend to increase. This is believed to be because there are more opportunities for criminals, since there are more obvious signs that houses are unoccupied.

Most house break-ins are opportunistic, so don’t give thieves that opportunity. Analysis shows that most of the burglaries in our area occur between 2pm and 11pm, Thursday to Monday, although this does not mean they won’t happen at other times. You can significantly reduce the chance of being burgled by taking a few simple precautions.

•  A well-lit home gives the impression someone is in

•  Use timer switches to turn lights on when you are out

•  Save energy and money with low-energy light bulbs

•  Lock windows and doors and keep gates and side entrances well secured

•  Don’t leave car keys and valuables near windows, doors or letterboxes, or leave them in obvious hiding places such as kitchen or hallway drawers

•  Invest in external lighting

Depending on the time of year, burglars target specific items, such as stealing cash in November when this is more prevalent in victims' houses – ready to spend for Christmas celebrations. 

In December offenders are targeting expensive clothing & footwear, cameras, iPod/mp3 players and cosmetics including aftershave & perfume.

These items may be sold on or being kept to use as gifts.
