A long-serving member of an Ilkeston Safer Neighbourhood Team will bid a fond farewell this week — as she bids to become a fully-fledged Pc.

Jennifer Hobson has been patrolling the streets of Larklands and Gallows for the past four years as a PCSO and briefly worked on Cotmanhay and Shipley View beat.

She leaves the post on Friday, May 24, to start training as a police constable in Derbyshire in June.

During her time as a
PCSO, she has been involved in a wide variety of projects.

PCSO Hobson said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed serving the local community. I hope I have provided reassurance for the residents and a valuable visible presence for the neighbourhood area.

“I have met some lovely people in the last four years, both residents and partner agencies, and I will miss working in the neighbourhood I have grown to know very well but also look forward to the challenges ahead.”
