New PCSO takes to the streets of Shipley, Smalley, Horsley, Heanor and Loscoe areas

People living in Heanor, Loscoe, Shipley, Smalley, Horsley and the surrounding areas will be seeing a new face on the streets as the local neighbourhood policing team welcomes a new member.

Rio Lyons is the latest Police Community Support Officer to join the local Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team.

Before becoming a PCSO, Rio worked for Specsavers for five years, but fancied a change in career and noticed the role advertised.

PCSO Lyons said: “What attracted me to the role was the fact it was community based. It’s totally different to what I’ve done before and I’m really enjoying it.”

Since joining the team, she has been busy getting out on patrol in the area, visiting schools to talk to youngsters about staying safe online, carrying out CCTV enquiries and has been involved in a drug warrant.

She added: “I am hoping to get to know more about my area and to meet local community members as I go about my patrols. If there are any concerns or issues you think we could help with then please contact us and if you see me out and about in the area, don’t hesitate to stop and say hello.”

Outside of work Rio, who grew up in the Ilkeston area, likes to bake cakes and has already treated her colleagues, PCs Lorna Dashfield and Garry Statham, and fellow PCSOs Jenny Lorimer, Thomas Shale and David Mott to some samples.

To contact your local Safer Neighbourhood Policing team call 101, or send them a message through the My Local Police pages of the website,
