A NEW Police and Community Support Officer is patrolling the streets of Pilsley, near Chesterfield.
PCSO Laura McLuckie has been recruited as part of the North Wingfield, Pilsley, Stonebroom and Shirland Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team.
The former hotel receptionist has taken over from Andrew Newton, who is now a Police Constable.
She said: “I’m enjoying the role, getting out and about on my patch and meeting residents. I have already helped out in a drugs warrant, visited the local school, met shopkeepers and attended the parish council meeting.
“I would like to help set up some activities for local youngsters during the summer to provide them with something to do and help prevent calls about nuisance behaviour.”
