New Police Community Support Officer, Emily Stanesby, has become the most recent member of the Langley Mill local Safer Neighbourhood policing team.
She joins Derbyshire police as part of the latest recruitment drive which has seen 16 new PCSOs welcomed across the county.
Before joining the police, 19-year-old Emily worked as an outdoor pursuits instructor at The Adrenalin Jungle in Sherwood Forest while she was studying for A Levels in law, business and graphics.
As well as meeting staff from the other agencies at community meetings, Emily has already been out on patrol, seizing around 20 bottles of alcohol from underage drinkers in Langley Mill.
PCSO Stanesby said: “I’m really enjoying the role and am looking forward to working with the community, hopefully making a difference to the people’s lives. I thrive on a challenge and I look forward to the variety of work that the role brings.
“With my background in outdoor pursuits, I would like to be able to use my skills to set up some diversionary activities for young people. My priorities at the moment though are to really get to know my community and I hope that people will come over and talk to me if they see me in the local area.”
Emily has taken over the reins from former PCSO Nicola Greenfield, who has moved on to become a police officer.
