Police Officer Information for Cirencester Rural South

NameRankBio
Neil Lightfoot PC

I am PC Neil Lightfoot and I am part of the Cotswolds Local Policing Team. I joined the Constabulary in 2007 and between 2007 and 2012 I worked as a response officer in Gloucester and the Cotswolds. In 2012 I joined the Neighbourhood team covering the Rural South which covers such villages such as South Cerney and Kemble to name but a few. I left neighbourhood policing in 2015 to join a project in Police Headquarters helping the organisation deliver and roll out the SN4 mobile devices to frontline police officers. 2017 saw me working in the Police Training Department where I trained student Police officers and PCSO’s. I am also a qualified assessor.

Missing the countryside, my Cotswolds policing family and its residents I asked to return to Neighbourhood policing where I now find myself as the beat bobby for Tetbury and the Rural South.

 

My role is varied but for me I enjoy walking the beat which gives me the opportunity to discuss local issues with members of the public. I also visit local schools and community groups.

 

I enjoy going to the gym and spending time with the family.

 

Adrien Kapronczai PCSO

PCSO 9000 Adrien Kapronczai grew up in Hungary and has lived in the UK for 14 years. She has been working for Gloucestershire Constabulary since June 2017. She previously worked as a constable for Merseyside Police and worked as a Hungarian interpreter for over 5 years working with courts and the police on serious and organised crime cases as well as minor offences all over the North of England and the Midlands. She really enjoys the countryside and seeing all the farm animals everywhere. In her spare time she likes to travel, play music (guitar), create films (record and edit) and read books (non-fiction). She also loves the lakes in the area and is looking forward to do some rowing over the summer.

PC Ashley Weller (Rural and Wildlife Crime) PC

I am PC Ashley Weller, and I have been working in the police for 12 ½ years as of June 2018. 7 of those years were on a response unit in Birmingham and the remainder in the Cotswolds and Stroud.

My sole role in the Cotswolds is a Wildlife and Rural Crime Officer, where I deal with anything from farming issues in which police attention is required, wildlife crime problems, through to poaching and general rural crime.

I have an obsessive passion for the countryside and looking after it.

This sounds cheesy, but my job is partly my hobby. Not the paper work or corporate bit, but going out in to the country side and seeing some of the sights I see. I feel very lucky to work where I do.

 

Garrett Gloyn Sgt

A local lad who joined the Constabulary in 1996, I have spent almost all of my service working in the Stroud and Cotswolds districts. Promoted to Sergeant in 2004 I am now part of the Cotswolds Neighbourhood Policing Team and supervise a team of Constables and Community Support Officers. I love the variety of work that comes my way on a daily basis and get a great deal of job satisfaction from the impact that the teams work can have on the quality of life for residents in the district.

I am a keen runner, enjoy travelling, walking my two Golden Retrievers. 

Andrew Wood Sgt

Sgt Wood joined Gloucestershire Constabulary as a Special Constable in Cirencester back in 1993, before joining the regular police in 1996. As a Police Constable, he initially worked in Charlton Kings and Cheltenham Town Centre, with occasional periods in Tewkesbury. After a stint on surveillance, he was posted to Gloucester South, covering the Hardwicke, Quedgeley , Podsmead and Tuffley areas of the city, and also as a guard in custody. Following promotion in 2003, he continued to work in these areas, with occasional periods as duty sgt for the whole of the city or the Forest of Dean.

In 2008 he was posted, initially to Cirencester, but then joined the duty sgt cadre covering the Cotswolds and Stroud areas. During that time he was temporarily promoted to Inspector, supervising the support services such as crime prevention, licensing, firearms and neighbourhood watch.

A return to Cirencester in 2011 has seen him perform roles as response Sgt and further periods of Inspector duties. In January 2018 he became part of the Neighbourhood team.

In addition to his day to day role, Sgt Wood is one of the constabularies Hostage and Crisis Negotiators and also coordinates searches for lost people. Involved with the Police Cadet scheme since its inception, he has recently stepped back from that function, but still provides inputs to their sessions.

Away from the police, Sgt Wood has an avid interest in aviation, and likes to play the guitar. A keen gym user, he holds a black belt in Kickboxing.

Darren Thomas LPSO

I have been working for the Constabulary for nine years.  I have been in several different roles during this time, but my current role is a Local Policing Support Officer and my responsibilities are mainly behind the scenes, looking after the police stations in the Cotswolds, and ensuring the officers have everything they need to carry out their roles in serving the public.

Over the last few months I’ve started attending Police Points and Community Events, bringing along a selection of Crime Prevention items for you to view and buy.  It has been great to get out into the community and to meet the public.

In my spare time I love to go walking and enjoy holidays in my caravan.
