Harriet Copley PC

I joined the Neighbourhood team in October 2017, and I am always looking for a new project to get involved in. I work in the Central beat area and am specifically responsible for the Forton ward.

Domestic Abuse champion and School Links Officer for St Mary's Catholic Primary School.

Andrew Burnham PC
Kerry Needham PC
Paul Rogers PC

I have worked in Gosport for a number of years so feel that I know the area well. I am normally patrolling on a bike so please feel free to stop me if there is anything you wish to discuss regarding problems or issues within your neighbourhood. I am specifically responsible for the Privett Council ward area.

Deana West PCSO

Hello I am PCSO Deana WEST and I will be joining the Gosport Central Neighbourhood Team in September 2015. I am really looking forward to getting to know the community and learning about the area and the people. If you see me about on my patrols, please feel free to come and say hi, and ask me any questions you may have and if I cant answer them straight away I will get the answers and feedback to you.

Kieran Howard PCSO

I am PCSO 14328 Kieran Howard and I have been working as a Police Community Support Officer on the Neighbourhood Policing Team at Gosport Police Station since December 2008.

My role is a varied one and differs from day to day. On the whole, though, I deal with antisocial behaviour, neighbour disputes as well as give talks at various clubs and schools and attend resident meetings. I see the PCSO’s primary focus as providing a high-visibility presence within the community as well as reassuring the public that we are on hand to deal with any problems should they arise.

Members of the public constantly come up to us, either to ask us something, inform us of something or just to have a chat.
I believe we have an important role to play in supporting the community and providing a visible presence within the community.

Tracy Burton PCSO

I am Police Community Support Officer Tracy BURTON, and I belong to the Neighbourhood Policing Team which covers Alverstoke/Privett and Leesland. I have been a PCSO since November 2006, and have been based at Gosport since January 2007.
I thoroughly enjoy this role, and the many challenges it offers! I deal with many different identities within the community, such as Elderly, Young People, Mental Health etc, and engage with these on a regular basis. By working in a community I work with many different partnership agencies such as the council, adult services, youth workers, neighbourhood watch etc, which helps to provide a better community to live in.
My role of a PCSO is ideal as it involves talking to various people, which is good as I can talk for England!!! This also enables me to identify vulnerable people that live within the area that I patrol, and to help make them feel safe.

Ian (Shiner) Wright PCSO

I am PCSO WRIGHT and I work the Elson beat area: I have been a PCSO since April 2007 and before that I was a Special Constable for 9 years. All my police service to date has been in Gosport and Lee on Solent.

My role is very much what it says on the label- I support the community and I am employed by the Police. My role involves dealing with underage drinking, Anti Social Behaviour (ASB), Graffiti and anything else I come across whilst I am out and about. I am always willing to stop and talk (unless I am on the way to an incident!) and will take note of any issues you have and if I cant help I will be able to point you to someone who can.

Dawn Ayres PCSO

I am PCSO 13469 Dawn Ayres and I currently patrol the Gosport Town area. I have been a PCSO since January 2007 and work in the Safer Neighbourhood Team at Gosport Police Station. I have also served as a Special Constable for four years.

The majority of my role provides a high visible presence in the community: dealing with neighbour and parking disputes, any anti-social behaviour issues such as underage drinking or rowdiness, reassurance visits to victims of crime, educational visits to school, scout groups and churches and attending community meetings such as Neighbourhood Watch. I have been an SEN (special educational needs) governor and ran a Junior PCSO scheme for some years. Over the years I have built a good rapport with the community and get a great deal of satisfaction knowing I can help people.

Neighbourhood Priorities for Gosport Central

IssueActionDates

ASB
With the hot weather upon us and the school holidays fast approaching reports of anti social behaviour in areas throughout the district are expected to rise. Some areas have already started to report initial concerns. So raised as a community Priority

GOSPORT
Gosport
Hampshire
PO12 2QT

Good afternoon

The great weather continues and the school holidays are upon us , We've had a slight increase in reports of antisocial behaviour but at this time nothing significant in any particular area.
Areas of seasonal interest continue to be
1- Stanley Park,
2- Priory Road,
3- Jackie Spencer Bridge ( black bridge)

other areas have started to receive calls for service but at present as above nothing significant.

Your local neighbourhood team and partners will be patrolling the identified area's and dealing with any anti social behaviour and criminal offences appropriately.
Please continue to report any issues in your area so that we have a full picture of what is happening in the community.
Historically we've had residents come to the police and partners reporting issues BUT at the point where the issue has had an impact personally or a significant impact to the area , they have discussed it locally but not reported. Its important that we become aware as soon as possible of concerns so we can deal before this happens.

have a great summer.
