Winchester Central Police Local Neighbourhood

The Winchester Central neighbourhood is situated within the city of Winchester and is policed by the Hampshire Constabulary.

Winchester is the ancient capital of Wessex, a county town of Hampshire and it’s the burial place of many of England’s Kings, Queens, Saints and famous people such as Jane Austen, Izacc Walton and Keats.

Here the rule of Common Law was established, the Domesday book compiled, and the Winchester Bible was written.

Winchester attracts a large amount of tourists with it''s Cathedral, Castle ruins, Military Museum and King Arthur''s Round table.
Winchester is a unique heritage city just a hour south west of London, with a magnificent Cathedral, award winning pubs and restaurants and a tempting array of independent shops, all surrounded by fabulous rolling countryside and numerous villages. It is a very small and concentrated city centre when compared to other city centres, however with the close links of the shops, pubs and CCTV there are significantly increased chances of the apprehension of offenders.

Donna Bidle PCSO
Gavin Cooper PCSO
Neil Parker PCSO
Rahim Ahmed PCSO

Hello, my name is Rahim Ahmed, I am a new PCSO and I have recently joined Hampshire Constabulary. I am delighted to have Winchester Central as my neighbourhood area. During my last job role as a security officer I have worked hard, enjoyed meeting new people and gained a lot of experience in tackling retail crime. I am very much looking forward to engaging with the local community and build a very strong relationship with everyone. As a new PCSO my aim is to build trust, gain local knowledge, prevent crime and help to make Winchester a safer place for everyone to live. I am extremely approachable and always up for a chat, so if you see me around please feel free to come and say hello.

Gemma Harley PCSO
Katie Barnes PCSO

My name is Kate and I have recently moved from Winchester Greater Neighbourhood Team in to Winchester City Centre.
I joined the constabulary in 2006 and have performed two different roles prior to becoming a PCSO in October 2010. My first role was in the Safety Camera Unit which has given me a good understanding of how speeding can impact on a community. After that role I took on the challenge of becoming a researcher for the Constabulary and hope that the skills I have learnt over the last four and a half years will be of great use to me in my new role as a PCSO.
