Profiles for Community Officers
Inspector Brian Clifford
I am Inspector Brian Clifford. I have responsibility for the Cotswold Neighbourhood Policing team. I have been a Police Officer for 24 years and have worked in the Cotswolds for the past 3 years. Prior to this I have worked in a variety of roles including a period at the National Policing Improvement Agency where I worked in the Citizen Focus and Neighbourhood Policing programme.
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 Alison Palfrey
I’m the Beat Manager for the Campden Vale Section. I have served with Gloucestershire Police for 18 years on front line duties, with nine of these in the North Cotswolds. I have worked on intelligence and always encourage the public to be our eyes and ears to help us tackle local crime.
PCSO Mike Jurkiewicz
Hello, I am a PCSO for the Campden Vale area. I have been a PCSO for 7 years, and really enjoy my role, especially taking out the Mobile Police Station, and meeting members of the public who can come along and talk about any issues that concern them.
Advice for driving on water logged roads
We have experienced an unprecedented period of bad weather, and whilst we have not been as badly affected as some in the Country, or indeed in this County, there is still the threat of more bad weather which could mean our roads once again flooding. Please take notice of the below tips which should hopefully assist you if you do happen to find yourself in the unfortunate position of coming across a flooded road.
- Check your route before you travel: Visit the Environment Agency's website before you set off to check for flood warnings and adjust your travel plans to avoid any roads that are prone to flooding during periods of heavy rain.
- Don't guess water depth: If you misjudge the depth of an area of floodwater and your car becomes submerged above the sills of the doors, it is at risk of stalling and causing major damage to the interior if you open a door.
- If you stall, don't try and restart the engine: If your engine sucks in water instead of air it could result in serious damage. Don't even be tempted to turn the key! Call to be professionally towed out.
- Keep your doors shut: If you get stuck on a flooded road, stay in your car and call for help on your mobile. Don't open your doors unless you are concerned for your safety.
- Park on high ground: Think carefully before you park your car in an area that is prone to flooding. Simply parking on a small nearby hill could save it from damage.
- Beware of 'dormant' water damage: If driving through deep water is unavoidable, damage can take months to show itself as corrosion can cause mechanical parts to fail.
Winter Driving Advice
Bad weather can strike suddenly so the best advice when severe weather hits is to stay off the road, however, if your journey is absolutely essential, plan ahead and prepare for the conditions. Keeping a well maintained vehicle is also very important.
Maintain your vehicle.
- Keep your battery fully charged.
- Add anti-freeze to the radiator and winter additive to the windscreen washer bottles.
- Make sure wipers and lights are in good working order.
- Check that tyres have plenty of tread depth and are maintained at the correct pressure.
- Most garages will carry out a ‘Winter Safety Check’ on your vehicle for you.
Prepare for your journey.
- Before you set off on your journey plan your route and tell someone where you are going and the route you are taking.
- Clear your windows and mirrors before you set out and carry a screen scraper and de-icer.
- Keep a shovel, wellingtons and warm clothing in the boot of your car just in case you get stuck Take a hot drink in a flask.
- Keep the lights, windows and mirrors clean and free from ice and snow.
Drive to the conditions.
- When roads are icy or slushy or visibility is reduced you need to adjust your driving to the conditions.
- Hail, heavy snow and rain reduce visibility. Use dipped headlights and reduce your speed.
- It can take ten times longer to stop in icy conditions than on a dry road. Drive slowly, allowing extra room to slow down and stop.
- Use the highest gear possible to avoid wheel spin.
- Manoeuvre gently, avoiding harsh braking and acceleration.
- To brake on ice or snow without locking your wheels, get into a low gear earlier than normal, allow your speed to fall and use the brake pedal gently.
- If you start to skid, ease off the accelerator but do not brake suddenly.
- Watch out for fog - it drifts rapidly and is often patchy. Drive very slowly using dipped headlights.
- Use fog-lights if visibility is seriously reduced, but remember to switch them off when visibility improves.
- Don't hang on to the tail-lights of the vehicle in front. This gives you a false sense of security and means you may be driving too close.
- Don't speed up suddenly, even if it seems to be clearing. You can suddenly find yourself back in thick fog.
- Dazzle from winter sun can be dangerous. Keep a pair of sunglasses handy.
- Salting vehicles travel at speeds of up to 40 mph spreading salt across all lanes of the carriageway. Drivers are advised to maintain a safe distance behind them. Do not attempt to overtake.
