New PCSO takes to the streets Bakewell and the White Peak villages
Main article content
People living in Bakewell and the surrounding villages of the White Peak are getting to know a new face on the streets as the local neighbourhood policing team welcomes a new member.
Benjamin Morris is the latest Police Community Support Officer to join the local Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team.
Before becoming a PCSO, Ben worked for a company that built minibus, ambulances and camper vans and volunteered with us as a Special Constable in the High Peak area.
He said: “I feel really lucky to work in Bakewell, the town has a great community spirit especially at the moment with everybody seems to be listening to the governments advice of staying home. I feel the local shops are doing a great job of looking after vulnerable people in the area supplying them with food and medicine.
“Since I started I’ve been involved in all different types of events and incidents; no two days are the same. I became a PCSO because I wanted a new challenge, and I love the sense of achievement I feel after completing a shift knowing that I have made a positive change to a situation and hopefully made someone’s life better.”
Outside of work Ben enjoys taking his three-year-old Yorkie Russell- a Jack Russel/Yorkshire terrier cross.
If you would like to help local communities, inspire change and create opportunities and help to create a safe environment then you might want to consider applying to become a PCSO.
