Sadly this week will be my last week (dated 3rd September) as a PCSO.  I am now moving on and beginning my career as a Police Officer in the Southampton area. I suspect a slightly busier area than I am used to! I have thoroughly enjoyed my time out here and feel privileged to have worked in such a nice area. There are many people I will miss and I want to say thanks to everyone for making my time out here so great.

PCSO Abbey Carpenter is replacing Dan!!
Fortunately, Abbey is replacing Dan as the PCSO for the area and will be working with Matt on a permanent basis. She is in the photo below! Dan will be showing Abbey around this week, please let us know if you would like to meet Abbey. Abbey is very keen as this is the first area she has worked in as a PCSO and is looking forward to meeting everybody!

Reduce anti-social behaviour especially around Bishops Green

Reduce speeding across the beat
*        Speed enforcement has been regularly conducted throughout August. This has
mostly been in Ecchinswell due to the traffic lights on the A339 causing people to use
Ecchinswell as a ‘rat run’. Regular speed enforcement has been conducted at both ends
and the middle of the village. Drivers have been stopped and there has been a noticeable difference in the average speed of cars travelling through Ecchinswell. We will continue speed enforcement activity to ensure this slower average speed is maintained and drivers are sticking to the speed limits!
