New cop takes to the streets in Shirebrook
Posted on 30th April 2013
Residents in Shirebrook have a new police officer patrolling their streets.
PC Dan Saunby is the latest face on the Shirebrook Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team, taking over from PC Adam Galley who has moved onto the response teams.
He has been a police officer since 2009, working on the response teams that cover Creswell, Bolsover and Tibshelf. Before joining the police Dan worked in education services for the council.
Since joining the team in March, PC Saunby has been out on patrol and speaking to residents and community members to find out more about any community issues or concerns.
Outside of work, Dan enjoys music and plays both the drums and guitar. He used to be part of a band but now plays just for fun. He also likes to keep fit but is currently busy with DIY having moved house recently.
PC Saunby said: “It’s a new role for me but I’m really enjoying the change and getting to see the more community focussed side of policing. I want to be able to build good relationships with local residents, so that they feel they can trust the local police and come forward with any local issues or crimes that have affected them.
“The area has suffered recently with a number of shed and non dwelling burglaries and this is something I’m keen to tackle and help reduce. I’ll also be working with my colleagues to ensure that we continue to target offenders and bring them to justice.”
The Shirebrook Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team includes PC Dan Saunby, PCSO Steve Cathcart and PCSO Matt Liddy.
To contact the team call 101, the non emergency number for Derbyshire police, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
