New Police Inspector for Cirencester

A NEW inspector has moved into Cirencester and already has bright ideas for the future of the town.

Inspector Karen Ellis recently took up her position as Cotswolds community policing inspector believes that by bringing groups together it can benefit the wider society.

"The first thing that has struck me about the Cotswolds is its strong sense of community spirit and responsibility, so I’m very fortunate to be able to start from such a strong position," said Inspector Ellis.

"Bringing together local groups and associations and to foster strong relationships with the police can really build on that and together we can continue to make the Cotswolds a safe place to live work and socialise."

Inspector Ellis began her career 25 years ago when she joined The Metropolitan Police in 1989. She transferred to Gloucestershire in 2004 and in the 10 years has performed a number of roles including roads policing, control room and as a response officer. She has been an inspector for the past eight years.

"I’ve been incredibly fortunate to have had such a varied career over the past 25 years and I’m immensely excited to be starting this next phase," she added. "I’m incredibly passionate about community policing and believe that the values that have stood me in good stead over the years will benefit the people of the Cotswolds."

Outside of work, Karen is a member of a brass band and regularly takes part in community events. Later this year Karen will be taking part in a wing walk on behalf of Parkinsons UK.

It all sounds very positive, though keeping some groups as far apart as possible also has its advantages. We have an excellent local policing team of Vicky Stinchcombe and Andrea Shutt here in Chedworth so I hope Karen will support them in their role, and of course we have a thriving Brass Band.
