Residents in Buxton and Fairfield will be seeing a new face on the streets as its latest PCSO joins the ranks.
Sophie Rost has taken on the role of police community support officer and will be joining the Fairfield Safer Neighbourhood Team alongside PC Steve Blore, PCSO Patrick Haley and Sergeant Russ Barlow.
PCSO Rost, who is currently being mentored by PCSO Alan Nield, will be heading out patrol in the Fairfield over the coming months to introduce herself to the local community.
Sophie, who also works as an indoor rock climbing instructor in Sheffield, has been training alongside the Buxton Safer Neighbourhood Team over the past five weeks.
PCSO Sophie Rost said: “I have always wanted a job that involves working with people and doing something different every day, and taking on the role of a Safer Neighbourhood officer really offers that opportunity.
“I have never been to Buxton before so I have been getting to know the area and the people living here whilst training. I have been tutored by Alan who has been great as it’s like he has the whole of Buxton in his head, full of great advice and information.
“I am really looking forward to joining the Fairfield Safer Neighbourhood Team and meeting lots of new faces, so when I am out on patrol come and introduce yourselves.”
To speak to the Fairfield Safer Neighbourhood team call 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.
