Published

on

North Yorkshire Police have welcomed 11 new Police Community Support Officers to the ranks following a passing out ceremony at police headquarters on Friday 17 January 2014.

Following an intensive 11-week training course, the new recruits are now ready for life on the beat and will begin working in their communities on Monday 20 January 2014.

Ready to help keep North Yorkshire’s communities safe are…

PCSO Scott Atkinson and PCSO Nicholas Woods who will both be based at Harrogate.

PCSO Eric Corfield who will be based at Catterick

PCSO Tess Forsdyke and PCSO Nathan Stuart who will both be based at Scarborough.

PCSO Jonathan Hields, PCSO Rebecca Lawrenson and PCSO Grant McNaught will all be based at York.

PCSO Georgina Lodge and PCSO Richard Stringer will be based at Stokesley.

PCSO Tim McGreevy will be based at Selby.

The officers were the first batch of recruits to carry out their training at Ripon police station where they got to grips with legislation, intelligence gathering, officers safety training, dealing with vulnerable people, major incidents and water, roads, firearms and drug awareness.

The officers also spent time engaging with the Ripon community before carrying out a three-day community placement in local organisations such as the YMCA, Youth services, drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres, Independent Domestic Abuse Services (IDAS), Henshaws Society for Blind People.
Assistant Chief Constable Ken McIntosh, said: “It gives me great pleasure to welcome the new PCSOs to North Yorkshire Police.

“They have worked very hard throughout their initial training and can now look forward to a challenging but rewarding career serving the communities of North Yorkshire. I am sure each and every one of them will be an asset to the service and the communities which they will serve.”

Julia Mulligan, Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire, said: “PCSOs play a vital role in keeping our communities safe from harm. They not only provide a reassuring uniformed presence and essential intelligence from local communities, but also vital front-line services tackling issues that affect people’s quality of life, such as anti-social behaviour.

“The public has also been clear that their top priority is bobbies on the beat. This is why last year I overturned the former Police Authority’s decision to cut funding for police officers and PCSOs. This recent recruitment drive is an important part of meeting my commitment to restore numbers to 2012 levels.

“I am therefore delighted to welcome new PCSOs and wish them every success in their careers with North Yorkshire Police.”

Girl aged 5 sadly dies after being recovered from the water at Durdle Door in Dorest

Officers investigating an incident where a girl tragically died after being recovered from the water at Durdle Door are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

At around 11.30am today, Wednesday 18 April 2018, HM Coastguard received reports of a child and a woman in distress in the water at Durdle Door in Dorset.

The woman was rescued from the water by a member of the public. A Ministry of Defence military range safety vessel, which was in the area and responded to a Mayday broadcast, recovered the girl from the water.

The five-year-old girl, from Salisbury, was taken by the RNLI Weymouth Lifeboat to Weymouth and transferred by the ambulance service to Dorset County Hospital, where she was sadly pronounced dead.

Detective Inspector Steve May, of Dorset Police, said: “Our thoughts are with the family of the young girl involved at this very difficult time.

“At this time there is nothing to suggest this was anything other than a tragic accident however, with the sudden death of any child we have an obligation to carry out an investigation to establish the full circumstances of what happened.

“I am appealing to anyone who witnessed how the girl came to be in the water and has not already spoken to police to contact us immediately.

“There were also a number of visitors in the area at the time and I am appealing to anyone who may have filmed or photographed the incident to please get in touch as it may assist our investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk, via email [email protected] or by calling 101, quoting incident number 18:127.
