Three new PCSOs have started on the beat in Watford. PCSO Kayleigh Thorn is covering the area of Watford Fields. Before joining, she previously worked in the Force Communications Room for four years, taking 999 calls.  Since starting, PCSO Thorn has been involved in patrolling her area as well as being involved in events such as the community safety day held at West Herts College in January. She said: “I’ve always wanted to be a PCSO. I love the job and thoroughly enjoy speaking to people, which is what this role is about. I will be holding a beat surgery on March 4 at the Wellspring Community Centre, at 11.30am and would love for people to come along to meet me and discuss any issues they have about crime or anti-social behaviour.” PCSO Liam Hanrahan is covering the area of Leggatts. Prior to joining the Constabulary he worked in the field of recruitment. Since joining, he’s been involved in a drugs warrant on his beat, as well as knocking on residents’ doors as part of the Safer Streets project which aims to give residents essential crime prevention advice and identify those that are vulnerable. He said: “I’m looking forward to getting further embedded into the community and would really like to increase the number of Neighbourhood Watch members. It really encourages community spirit and can help to reduce crime thanks to regular communication with the local PCSO.  If you’d like to sign up, please contact me via the non-emergency number 101.” PCSO Michael McDermott is covering the area of Stanborough, and joined the role because of the variety and community focus. He said: “I’ve been working closely with PCSO Linda Davey who has a lot of experience as a PCSO.  She’s been showing me the ropes and helping me engage with the Stanborough community. There’s lots of good work being done in Stanborough to tackle anti-social behaviour and I’m looking forward to helping to reduce it further, as well as getting to know the residents.”
