I would like to let you know that there will be some staff moves within the Mole Valley Safer Neighbourhood Team in the New Year. Continuity is very important and the officers moving have all been in their posts for several years. I have to balance continuity with individual officers wishes to develop either by taking on the challenges of a new area or towards promotion. I feel it is important to explain that these moves are not management led but are taking place in order that I can retain all three officers who are, in my view excellent NSOs and assests to Mole Valley whilst satisfying some of their needs in relation to career development.
PC 2188 Chris Lewis will be moving to the Leatherhead town to work alongside PC 2056 Gaynor Grout.
PC 2175 Jason Woods will be moving to cover the Goodwyns,Chartdowns and North Holmwood area.
PC 3239 Fran Davey will be moving to Ashtead
There will be handover periods, the officers are already attending adhoc key meetings on their new areas and Fran will work alongside Jason and then Jason alongside Chris for one month. Finally Chris will join Gaynor in Leatherhead. It is anticipated that the moves will be completed by March 2011.
Sadly we will be loosing PCSO Pete Yard from Goodwyns. Pete has an injury which necessitates him being redeployed to a role which means less walking. I am extremely proud of Pete’s achievements within the community and we will be very sad to see him go. In the short term he remains with the team supporting Chris, Lisa and his area from the office. I am working closely with the Force PCSO Manager to secure a suitable replacement.
PCSO Aimee Lucas from the Dorking rural East team is expecting a baby and remains on protected duties until March when she will go onto maternity leave. Aimee continues to support Dom and Ivor from the office and also at engagement events and panel meetings.
Unfortunately PCSO Clive Hudson from the Dorking town team remains on long term sick leave, I know that Clive is missing work and keen to get back. I don’t expect to have Clive back and on full duties for some months to come.
PC 2987 Jo Dootson from the Dorking Rural West team will return from maternity leave in January 2011.
PS Rundle and I are very aware that PCSO visibility and resilience is challenging for the teams that work from Dorking although across Mole Valley we are well staffed and where a need arises we will pull resources from other areas to assist.
