PCSO Jack Barlow joins the New Mills and Hayfield Safer Neighbourhood Team
Residents in New Mills and Hayfield will be seeing a new face on the streets as its latest PCSO joins the ranks.
Jack Barlow has taken on the role of police community support officer and began his patrols with the New Mills and Hayfield Safer Neighbourhood Team on Monday, June 16.
PCSO Barlow, who is currently being tutored by PCSO Lee Baker, will be on patrol throughout the Safer Neighbourhood area over the coming months to introduce himself to the local community.
Jack has previously played professional football for Everton and Blackburn’s youth teams and has already began to liaise with local schools to deliver sports training as part of a diversionary activity scheme.
PCSO Jack Barlow from the policing team said: “Both my parents have previously worked in the force and I have found how their roles can be highly interesting and rewarding.
“I have previously worked in a coffee shop and although I did enjoy it, this role opens up many opportunities to achieve and make a real difference in the local community.
“My first week with the team has taken a hands on approach and has included dealing with enquiries and working alongside other officers as part of an Operation Safedrive initiative.”
PCSO Barlow joins colleagues Sergeant Phil Booth, PC James Taylor and PCSO Lee Baker and PCSO Will Brockett on the New Mills and Hayfield Safer Neighbourhood Team.
