Barrow receives three new dedicated Community Beat Officers

Barrow will now benefit from three new Community Beat Officers who have joined the wider Barrow Neighbourhood Policing Team.

All three officers officially started their roles on 18 March and will begin working within their neighbourhoods, getting to know the residents and business owners, over the next few weeks.

PC Chloe Dixon will be the dedicated beat officer for Dalton and Askam. Speaking on her new role PC Dixon said: “I joined Cumbria Constabulary in 2020 and since then I have worked as a response officer in Barrow and completed a policing degree.

“As part of my new role, my key priorities will be to build a good relationship with the local community and reduce crime, in particular anti-social behaviour and drug supply.

“I am looking forward to dedicating my time to the Dalton and Askam communities and providing a regular, visible police presence there.”

PC Rheannon Hackett will cover the Hindpool and town centre areas as part of her role. PC Hackett has been a police officer for six years and as Barrow local herself she said: “I have always loved working in my hometown because I am passionate about it and the people in it.

“I am looking forward to working in the heart Barrow and using the knowledge and experience I have gained whilst working as a response officer to work with the local community and business owners.

“I will be focussing on anti-social behaviour and crime in my area and I’m keen to know of any other key issues in my area. I know how hard people and small businesses work to improve Barrow and I can’t wait to be a part of that community.”

PC Greg Rogerson has been an officer with Cumbria for six years now and covers Roose, Salthouse and Newbarns.

Speaking on his new role he said: “I was born and grew up in Barrow and I know what a strong community can achieve.

“I look forward to becoming part of the community and helping people where I can”.

Inspector Damien Mottram, of Barrow Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “I’m pleased to introduce three new Community Beat Officers to the area. Over the coming weeks they will begin work to establish themselves in their communities and understand some of the issues in their areas.

“As part of their roles, these officers will be able to provide a visible, reassuring police presence in their areas, deterring crime and also work with local residents and business owners to understand, prevent and detect crime and anti-social behaviour.

“PCs Dixon, Hackett and Rogerson are all experienced officers and I have no doubt they will provide excellent support to the policing team of Barrow and our partners.”
