Shipley has a new police community support officer patrolling its streets who aims to target road safety.
Vicky Hill, who has been a PCSO for more than three years, has taken over from PCSO Becky Davis on the local Safer Neighbourhood policing team for Shipley, Smalley, Horsley, Heanor and Loscoe.
PCSO Hill joined the team in March this year, having worked previously in the South Normanton and Pinxton area.
She said: “I’m really enjoying getting to know my area and the communities I serve. In particular I will be looking at targeting road safety concerns in the Shipley area and I also hope to set up some activities for local youngsters, with plans underway to organise some with an outdoor or countryside related theme this year.
“If you do see me out and about, please don’t hesitate to come and say hello, or to contact our team if you have any concerns or issues about your local area.”
Vicky joins colleagues PC Rich Martin, PC Sarah Allcock and PCSO Emma Fisher at Heanor.
