Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) Sue Jones has been chosen as PCSO of the year for Buckinghamshire, after receiving nominations from members of the public and colleagues commending her for her great work in the area she covers.  She is based at Waddesdon police station and covers the Haddenham and Long Crendon neighbourhood that includes Cuddington.

Sue joined Thames Valley Police in 1999.  Described in nominations as being and friendly, practical and amazingly knowledgeable, Sue works closely with the rural communities in the villages she patrols and works closely with young people in the area.

She holds regular meetings at the local library to let residents know what support she can offer and ask for advice, as well as offering security marking and crime reduction advice to help victims avoid becoming a victim of crime.  Sue attends parish council meetings regularly and updates them and residents about what is happening in the area and surrounding villages.

PCSO Jones also attends schools and playgroups to talk to children and also speaks to young people who gather in the parks in villages to speak to them about their behaviour and what impact it could have on those around them and the consequences of a criminal record for something such as criminal damage.

Many residents talk about how accessible Sue is to them, even when she is not on shift she is happy to offer advice and support if they contact her.

PCSO Jones said: “I am so very fortunate to be doing a job that I really enjoy, and to work with so many people who are so proactive and committed to their communities.  I would like to thank all of those who voted for me.  I am overwhelmed by their kindness.”
