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 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.


Winter driving advice

As the temperatures have dropped, many of us are having to de-ice our cars before setting off to work or on the school-run. Remember not to leave vehicles unattended with the engine running while you wait for them to de-frost. Every winter, we get reports of vehicles being stolen from driveways or outside homes because they have been left insecure whilst the owner goes back inside the house to keep warm.

We would also like to remind you of some useful travel tips, so that you are prepared in case of icy roads, heavy snowfall or thick fog:

•   Do not travel unless you really have to

•   Check the weather/travel reports before setting off

•   If going on a long journey, plan your route and let someone know which roads you will be travelling on and give yourself plenty of extra time

•   Telephone a friend or relative when starting or finishing your journey so they know you are safe

•    Keep a shovel in the boot of your car in case you do get stuck in snow and in extreme cases where you may be stuck for a number of hours make sure you have a travel blanket, a working torch (wind up ones are handy as you don’t need batteries), a first aid kit, de-icing equipment, Wellington boots and a charged mobile phone. It is also handy to take a flask filled with a hot drink.

•    In thick fog, visibility is poor, so make sure you have your lights and fog lamps on. If driving in a line of traffic and you can see the vehicle behind, turn off your rear fog lamps so they don’t dazzle the driver behind you

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.
