VILLAGERS will be seeing a new man in uniform on their streets this week, as the latest Special Constable joins Ilkeston police.

Dean Barnes will be patrolling Morley, Dale Abbey, Stanley, Stanley Common and West Hallam with the Ilkeston Rural Safer Neighbourhood Team.

SC Barnes is a sales assistant at Ikea by day and volunteers with Derbyshire police four hours a week. He said: “I am passionate about serving the community and hope to make a difference.”
