I am the beat officer for Congresbury, Churchill, Langford and Blagdon which is part of the Nailsea Neighbourhood Team. I work closely with PCSO Marie Broomfield and have worked this area for the last 14 months. I have been a beat manager for seven years and the previous five years as a Crime Reduction Specialist; all in the North Somerset Area. My first eight years as a Police Officer were spent in South Bristol stationed at Broadbury Road.
Marie has been a PCSO for four years, previously working in Police HQ for 11 years call handling and delivering training to colleagues.
We work predominately on community engagement and attend as many local events as we can; this area is key to finding out what people would like us to concentrate on and how we can solve local problems. Our work in local schools is also vital to our future engagement with young people, you will often see Marie outside schools at drop-off / pick up times.
We are always looking for new ways of engagement so if anyone has any ideas please get in contact.
