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 Sarah Crawford

I have recently taken over the role as Beat Manager for Moreton in Marsh and the surrounding areas. I have been a Police Officer for 15 years and have worked in various stations all over the County during that time. I have worked mostly in the role of Response Policing and look forward to the new challenges that Community Policing will bring.

PCSO Fiona Walsh

I have just recently joined the team. I have previously worked as a receptionist for the Constabulary in both Gloucester and Stroud for the last three years and I am looking forward to the new challenges and opportunities presented in my new role.


Halloween advice

For some people, this time of the year can be a bother as your evenings are interrupted with people knocking on your doors for treats. Most of these children or teenagers are just getting involved in the Halloween celebrations and will be friendly and by following the tips below, Halloween can be a happy and safe event for everybody.

If you feel unsafe:

  • Don’t open your door if you’re unsure who is there. Use your spyhole, look out of a window and use your door chain if you do decide to open your door

  • Have a contact number of a close relative or good neighbour to hand by your telephone, just in case you need to phone them

  • If you are part of a Neighbourhood Watch scheme, let your coordinator know that you will be on your own at Halloween

  • If you are a coordinator, please identity people in your scheme that may be vulnerable and offer them reassurance – ‘No trick or treat’ posters are available from your local PCSO



  • Adults should always accompany children when trick-or-treating.Youngsters should never go trick-or-treating alone

  • Do not knock on the doors of strangers - only go to people you know and never go into a stranger’s house

  • Always keep to well-lit areas and wear bright clothing and always carry a torch

  • Unless pre-arranged, do not visit elderly members of the community & be careful not to frighten vulnerable people

  • Keep your tricks within the law - anything that results in damage is an offence and will be dealt with as such
