Police Officer Information for Wellington West and Rural

NameRankBio
Gary Wade Inspector

Following an early career in licensing I joined West Mercia Police in 1990 immediately being posted to Wellington Police Station.


Within a short time I joined the Telford Armed Response Teams where I worked for the next 12 years prior to promotion to Shift Sergeant and a 4 year period within Telford Custody Unit.


In 2008 I joined the Force Professional Standards Department where I worked within the Misconduct arena for 5 years before returning permanently to Telford on promotion to Inspector in 2014 within the Telford Safer Neighbourhoods Team West.

 

Dan Taylor Sergeant

Following an early career in the RAF, in 1991 I joined the British Transport Police where I served across the West Midlands region.

I transferred to West Mercia Police in 1994 and was initially posted to Wellington Police Station where I remained a patrol officer until I was promoted to Patrol Sergeant in 2002.

In the last 13 years, in addition to Patrol Sergeant I have enjoyed a number of different supervisory roles. Between 2003 and 2005 I was a Response Unit supervisor with responsibility for investigating Fatal Road Traffic Collisions within Telford and Wrekin. Between 2006 and 2008 I was the supervisor of the Uniform Support Group and between 2011 and 2013 I was a custody Sergeant based at Malinsgate police station.

 In August 2015 I was appointed Sergeant of the Telford Safer Neighbourhoods Team West.

Nigel Barnsley Police Constable
Zoe Beven Police Community Support Officer

Zoe joined Westmercia Police in 2009 and has worked as a PCSO from Wellington Police Station since then. Initially Zoe covered the area of Haygate & Ercall Local Policing Team. Since October 2013 this area has been merged in with Rural Wellington to become what is now Wellington West & Rural Safer Neighbourhood Team. If she is not in and around the Wellington Town she could be trekking across fields on Rural. Zoe enjoys chatting a lot so feel free to stop her on patrol if you would like to say hello, 6ft tall so you can't miss her :-)

Neighbourhood Priorities for Wellington West and Rural

IssueActionDates

In Wellington Town there has been a lot of mess left everyday by rough sleepers.

 

This is affecting business and public coming to the town.

 

9 rough sleepers counted last week of which a few are begging around town on a daily basis.

We have been liasing with the Wellington Town Council on  Wednesday 24th April, after a discussion with them and Telford and Wrekin Council the Contractors were brought in to clean up all the mess (mattresses / tables / bedding)

Wellington Local Policing team has also been out and given all the homeless they have come across a leaflet with services that could assist them in help for addictions, housing, support etc.

During a meeting about the Shop doorway ( The old Stead & Simpsons)  scissor shutters will be fitted to the shop front to stop the homeless coming back and using it as a bedroom / storage room. This work will be done week commencing 6th May.

Wellington Local Policing team advise public on a daily basis to report any begging by calling 101 and encourage the businesses to do the same to help combat the problem.

Issue dated: 03/05/2019

Action dated: 31/08/2019

We have traffic complaints and issues because of the amount of visitors and not enough parking which contributes to people not adhering to the basic rules in the highway code of not parking on double yellow lines.

Update January 2018

  • Parking monitored, there have been no issues over the colder period as there is less visitors to this attraction over the winter months.

 

  • There has been no update from Highways as to the improvements to be made to the surrounding roads.

 

 

 

 

 

Update: 26th April 2017

  • Patrolling the area
  • Consulted with Little Wenlock Parish Council
  • Reviewing current signs.

Update 8th Aug 2017

  • We have a meeting with the Highways department on Thursday 17th August 2017 to try to find other solutions for this problem.
Issue dated: 26/04/2017

Action dated: 30/11/-0001

Large groups gathering within the square and people begging within the Town.

UPDATE 22.05.2016

  • PCSO TENNANT / BEVEN to completing regular walkabouts and identify support  via partnership agencies.

 

UPDATE 23.09.2016

  • The team continue to work on this priority.  The summer months have seen a rise in the amount of anti social behaviour reported in the town,  The team have dealt with all incidents robustly and a number of people have been issued with warning notices regarding their behaviour.  Shop owners / staff have been urged to report incidents of anti social behaviour to allow the team to gather evidence to support Criminal Behaviour Orders.
