As a team our aim is to target crime and reduce anti-social behaviour problems as well as providing highly visible policing to suit the needs of our community.
We hold regular PACT meetings, beats surgeries and other engagement activity. Details of which can be found on the Hampshire Constabulary website

PC Claire Chivers

I am one of the Neighbourhood Policing Constables for Woolston. I have 10 years policing experience, and for the last 6 years I have been the Beat Officer for Weston and the Engagement Officer for Woolston and Weston. Both beats have now joined in line with the council wards. Our aims as The Woolston Neighbourhood Policing Team are to target crime and reduce anti-social behaviour (ASB) as well as being highly visible. For the last year and a half I have been working closely with partner agencies to help reduce ASB related incidents in the new development, Centenary Quay, Woolston. We have seen some positive reductions in ASB in that area and will be continuing the hardwork with my colleague PCSO Pauline Granaghan. I am also responsible for co-ordinating our Community Speedwatch.

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 Woolston.snt@hampshire.pnn.police.uk.

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!
