Residents living in the North Wingfield, Pilsley, Stonebroom and Shirland area have some new faces on patrol in the area.
It’s as we welcome a new bobby and Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) to the North Wingfield, Pilsley, Stonebroom and Shirland Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team.
PCSO Mario Montisci joined the team in August, having previously for the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive, in a role which included planning and developing bus shelters.
He was also a Special Constable, volunteering for South Yorkshire Police for eight years.
Mario will also join PCSO Mike Coates on the Wingerworth and Rural Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team.
On the North Wingfield, Pilsley, Stonebroom and Shirland Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team (also known as ‘South Eastern’), Mario is also joined by PC Stephen Sweet.
Stephen, who was originally from Newcastle, has been a police officer since 2013. He is no stranger to the area or policing though, as before becoming a police officer he worked as a PCSO for seven years at Clay Cross.
Since becoming a regular officer, PC Sweet has worked on response and investigation teams in the North East Derbyshire area.
Outside of work PCSO Montisci, who is a father to a son at college, enjoys football, travelling and weekends away.
PC Sweet enjoys gardening, and is an allotment holder and is a keen photographer with a particular interest in taking macro images.
Sgt. Mark Church, of the North Wingfield, Pilsley, Stonebroom and Shirland Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “I’m sure Stephen and Mario will be an asset to policing in the area bringing valuable skills and local knowledge. I’m delighted to welcome them to our team.
“They have both already been busy getting out and about in their communities and working to target any concerns about crime or anti-social behaviour. If you see them out and about, feel free to stop and say hello.”
