Kate, who joined the force in November 2008, initially worked from Roe Farm Police Station with Derwent Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team and later  joined the officers in the Spondon team.

She is set to leave D Division at the end of this week and carry on her role as PCSO with Clay Cross Safer Neighbourhood Team in Chesterfield.

PCSO Hodnett said: “I have really enjoyed my time working with the community in this part of Derby and alongside my colleagues at Derwent and Spondon.

“During my time, I have worked closely with a number of partner agencies, local community groups, such as NHW, schools, businesses and of course the local residents.

“I feel that a great working relationship has been established with these various groups through talks, crime prevention initiatives and visits.

 “I am quite sad to leave but at the same time look forward to the challenges of getting to know a new area and building on what the officers at Clay Cross have already established.

“On a personal note I would like to thank the community for all their support and efforts in assisting me and the team to make Spondon a safe and pleasant neighbourhood to work and live.”

PCSO Kate Hodnett will be taking on her new role on Monday, December 22.
