Residents in Glossopdale can expect to see two new faces on the beat as a new sergeant and PC join the team.
Sergeant Nicola Bateman is now in charge of the Safer Neighbourhood policing teams in the Glossopdale area, including Gamesley and St Johns, Glossop Town Centre, Hadfield and Tintwistle, and also New Mills and Hayfield.
Sergeant Bateman has served as a police officer for 16 years and has spent the majority of her time as a uniformed response officer working across the High Peak and Derbyshire Dales.
Sergeant Nicola Bateman said: “I am really looking forward to working with the already well-established members of the High Peak Safer Neighbourhood Team to help improve and enhance the quality of life for local residents.
“I am particularly interested in working closely with our partners to help tackle neighbourhood issues and make our communities safer places to live, work and visit.”
PC Jenny Oldfield is also a new member to the Safer Neighbourhood team, after joining the officers on the Glossop Town team earlier this month.
She said: “I have worked as a response officer here at Glossop since I first joined the force in 2008 and I was ready to take on a new challenge. After eight years on the beat, I know the area very well and I am aware of the issues that matter the most to local residents.
“Since joining the Glossop Town Safer Neighbourhood Team I have been getting to know partner agencies, carrying out foot patrols in the town and also hosting Street Meets in local supermarkets. I look forward to getting to know and helping out more people in the coming weeks.”
Sergeant Bateman and PC Oldfield will be working alongside PC Julian Gallagher and PCSOs Will Brockett, Ann Morris, Jack Barlow, and Amy Mckeever on the Glossop Town Safer Neighbourhood Team.
Sergeant Bateman will also be working alongside Inspector Barry Doyle to take charge of the Safer Neighbourhood policing teams in Gamesley, Hadfield and Tintwistle, and New Mills and Hayfield.
