PCSO Tammy Bell-Heather and PC Danny Smith take on Safer Neighbourhood policing in Ashbourne

Residents in Ashbourne can expect to see two new faces on the beat as the neighbourhood policing team welcomes its latest members. 

PC Danny Smith and PCSO Tammy Bell-Heather have recently taken on the role of Safer Neighbourhood policing in Ashbourne, alongside Sergeant Denis Murphy.

PC Smith first joined the force in 2006, where he served as a PCSO for residents in the areas of Belper and Kilburn.

Danny then took on the role of PC in 2008 where he developed his career as a response officer in Matlock. He has since become a tutor constable and has successfully mentored two new student officers within the force.

PC Danny Smith from the Ashbourne Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “I hope to bring my previous experience of neighbourhood and reactive policing to my new role here at Ashbourne. 

“I am looking forward to working alongside residents and partner agencies to tackle the real issues that matter to those living in Ashbourne and surrounding villages.

“I will be heading out on the beat to get to know the local area and all of the people that live and work here.”

PC Smith has also been joined by PCSO Tammy Bell-Heather who has recently joined the team having moved over from the Matlock Safer Neighbourhood Team.

PCSO Tammy Bell-Heather said: “During my time at Matlock I have developed strong links with partner agencies and have had great success with reducing ASB and developing a Charity Watch project for the area.

“I hope to bring these skills to my new role at Ashbourne as it is a community close to my heart.

“I will be working to serve the community and its needs, along with engaging with local schools and community groups to help to reduce any concerns that they may have.

“I look forward to the challenges that policing in Ashbourne and the rural villages will bring.”
