BOSTON'S band of Police Community Support Officers is growing with four new recruits now pounding the beat around the area.
The town centre has welcomed Kym Davis, 34, while the Boston Rural North area sees the arrival of 30-year-old Claire Scott, Owen Prichard, 32, and 40-year-old Nicola Stutchfield.
The officers have completed an intensive four-week training and have now joined their respective teams.
“This is a tremendous boost to our local neighbourhood policing teams and we are delighted to welcome the new officers to East Division,” said Chief Insp Malc Cooke, who heads up community policing for the division.
“These officers will bring even more energy and commitment to improving the quality of life for local people and will be out there in their communities and really making a difference.”
Pcsos were brought in to provide a link between the police and the local community and, since their introduction, have been hailed a great success.
“Many Pcsos come to the job with a great deal of experience having worked in other careers and with some ‘living’ under their belt,” added Chief Insp Cooke.
“What they all have, however, is a real passion for getting involved with communities and tackling lower level, nuisance crime and looking for solutions.”
The East Division has welcomed a total of seven new Pcsos.
Martin Clough will be covering Woodhall Spa and Coningsby, Amy Coble is on duty in Skegness, and ZaZa Warren is pounding the beat in Louth.
l In the coming weeks, the Pcsos will be introducing themselves to the community.
