Predominately before joining Gloucestershire Constabulary in 2000 as a Fleet Vehicle Supervisor, I was a Manager in various roles within different Motor Franchises.
2003 I decided a complete change of career paths, and became a Police Community Support Officer, covering Brockworth, Churchdown and Innsworth from the now closed station which was Cheltenham Road East.
Moving to Tewkesbury I now cover Golden Vale, which is Churchdown and Innsworth.
In 2006 I was awarded Police Community Support officer of the year for Gloucestershire.
Since then I have received several Chief Constables Merit awards and a Chief Constables Quality of Service award for commitment in the continuing pursuit of excellence in my role as a PCSO.
In 2006 I also became a tutor for PCSO’s.
I enjoy my role immensely, relishing the different challenges and rewards each day brings, whilst working as part of the Tewkesbury Neighbourhood Policing team.
