Alex Nuthall Police Community Support Officer

I previously worked on the Hereford Rural North SNT for 12 months before joining Gorse Hill and Rainbow Hill SNT. Whilst working in Hereford I did a lot of work with partner agencies helping to set up youth events for the children in the area in which I worked. This helped to deter these children becoming involved and committing anti-social behaviour. Prior to working for the police I worked in retail management; this has aided me in working with members of the public from all backgrounds and walks of life. If you see me out and about please feel free to come over and say hello.

Abi Stokes Police Community Support Officer

I joined West Mercia as part cadet scheme and took part in that scheme for 2 years. I then applied to be a Police Community Support Officer with West Mercia in 2018. I am looking forward to getting out there and meeting everybody.

My main aim is to eventually apply to become Police Officer.
