Peartree & Merryoak neighbourhood policing team

PC Sarah Humphries

I am one of the Neighbourhood Policing Team Officers for the area and am responsible for the new Peartree Ward. I have been a member of Hampshire Constabulary since 2005 when I volunteered as a Special Constable. I joined Hampshire as a Police Constable in 2007 working in the north of the county before moving down to Bitterne in 2010. Since then I have been the local beat officer for Sholing, Peartree and Merryoak. My team and I aim to reduce crime and anti social behaviour by providing highly visible policing and engaging with our community. You can come along and meet us at our PACT meetings and beat surgeries where we discuss any concerns and issues in the area and look to resolve them. If you have any questions, wish to report anything that is not urgent or want to come along to our beat surgeries contact us on 101 or by email Or check our website for more details.

PC Gemma Cooper

I am one of the new Neighbourhood Policing Team Police Officers for the area and will be responsible for the new Peartree Ward. I have been a member of Hampshire Constabulary since December 2008, working in a number of roles covering Police Staff, Special Constabulary and Police Officer in different geographical areas. I am very excited to have the opportunity to have an engagement role, whereby I can meet the communities I serve and hopefully make a positive difference. I aim to achieve this by helping to alleviate and stop the issues most affecting the residents of Peartree Ward. In addition to this I will be taking on the project of Bitterne Precinct and Shop Watch, along with PCSO Keira HOWARD in partnership with local businesses and authorities, between us we hope to make the precinct a more welcoming place to visit. I really do think I have the best job in the world and am very passionate about making a difference to your quality of life, from dealing with burglaries to stamping out anti social behaviour. When you see me out and about please do not be shy, come and say hi! I hope to meet you all very soon!
