Fairfield PCSO waves farewell as he takes on new challenges in the force

Posted on 18th June 2015

A PCSO from Fairfield is soon to be hanging up his Safer Neighbourhood hat as he sets his sights on new policing challenges.

PCSO Patrick Haley, who has been part of the Fairfield Safer Neighbourhood for over two years, is set to leave the team later this month to begin his training as a regular police officer for the force.

During his time on the team, PCSO Haley has worked closely with his colleagues on both the Fairfield and Buxton Town Centre beats to help make the local communities safer for all.

Patrick said: "I have been in the job for two and a half years and have loved every minute of it.

"I have been part of the Fairfield Safer Neighbourhood Team for two years now and I will miss all of the people that make this such a close knit community. I have had some wonderful experiences with Safer Neighbourhood policing on the Fairfield estate, and on occasions, Buxton Town Centre.

"I have really enjoyed working as part of a great team that care deeply about the area we patrol. There have been many highlights such as covering the popular Buxton Carnival, visiting schools to get to know the teachers and pupils, along with providing safety advice and reassuring local residents.

"Although I will miss being a part of the Safer Neighbourhood team, I can't wait to progress my career and become a police constable for Derbyshire Constabulary. I am ready to take on the new challenges that this new role will bring, to help provide safer communities for residents and visitors across Derbyshire."

PCSO Patrick Haley will be taking to the beat on Tuesday, June 23 to carry out his last shift as a Safer Neighbourhood officer.
