Hereford Rural North Southside Police Local Neighbourhood

Welcome to the site for Hereford Rural North Team. We are a small team and currently work from Bath Street Station in Hereford. We feel privileged to work in an area of outstanding natural beauty like Herefordshire and strive to make it an even safer place to live, work in and visit. We are committed to serving our communities and targeting those that present most risk to our community, protecting those at risk and patrolling those areas deemed most at risk of harm. We are out on patrol as often as possible whether it is on foot, or by car, to ensure we reach all corners of our area. Please approach us if you see us out and about and we will be more than happy to stop and chat. You can also reach us by phone or e-mail to discuss and concerns or issues.

Police Officer Information for Hereford Rural North Southside

NameRankBio
Greg Tudge Inspector

I have 14 years police service and have undertaken various roles including patrol, custody and SNT. I have been a Safer Neighbourhood Inspector since October 2018. 

I have a real passion for ensuring that my team work effectively to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour, to bring offenders to justice and to protect the most vulnerable. 

It's important that your Safer Neighbourhood Teams listen to local concerns and work with local partners to make Hereford a safer place.

If you have an issue or matter you want to talk about please get in touch using the contact details below.
 

Bart McDonagh Police Constable

I have been an officer in West Mercia for over 7 years covering a variety of postings from Rural Shropshire and Leominster to Hereford city as well as the Golden Valley. I have been in the SNT role since August 2016, initially covering the Hereford City centre until a move to Rural North in February 2017.

Skye Jenkins Police Community Support Officer

PCSO Jenkins Joined West Mercia Police in April 2018 and covers Hereford Rural North.

Elena Daffurn Police Community Support Officer

I have worked for West Mercia Police as a Police Community Support Officer for over 12 years, covering both city and rural areas during this time. I'm often asked why I haven't become a Police Officer; for me personally, the PCSO role has more positives - we are given specific areas to cover which enables us to tackle community issues and work with partner agencies. In doing so, we get to know members of the community, giving them a point of contact for reassurance and advice.

PCSO's also assist Police Officers with crime enquiries and can provide valuable intelligence from the knowledge of each area. This information is often key when searching for missing people, vulnerable adults, Anti-Social Behaviour and drug activity.
