There are some new officers patrolling the streets of the Heanor and Loscoe and the Shipley, Smalley and Horsley areas.
PCs Garry Statham and Teresa Kay have stepped into roles on the area’s Safer Neighbourhood policing teams.
Teresa has been a police officer in Derbyshire for two years, working on the response and investigation teams across the Amber Valley and was formerly a Special Constable in Sheffield for two and half years.
Before becoming a police officer, Teresa was a Teaching Assistant at a primary school for 13 years.
Outside of work Teresa enjoys running, having completed a number of half-marathons, and has a cat called Ruddy.
Garry has almost 16 years’ experience as a police officer, and during his career has worked on the response and investigation teams in Ripley, Bolsover and Staveley. He is also not a stranger to neighbourhood policing, having spent time on the Safer Neighbourhood teams in the Shirebrook and Creswell areas.
He enjoys photography and boxing, and taking his one year old Beagle puppy, called Teddy, out for walks.
Both officers have been busy out on patrol, and getting to know their area, residents and community members. They are also currently working alongside their colleagues to target concerns around anti-social behaviour in Heanor.
Team Sgt. Mark Weldon said: “We’re pleased to welcome two new police officers to our Safer Neighbourhood teams in Heanor and the surrounding area.
“I’m sure Teresa and Garry will be an asset to policing, bringing their own valuable experience, skills and local knowledge to target local concerns and issues, and to help maintain a visible presence within our community.”
