Police commendation for Littleham PCSO

18:05 18 March 2013

Littleham’s new police community support officer Kevin Macleod has been commended for his work in the community after clamping down on anti-social behaviour.

When the PCSO joined Exmouth police last year, after moving roles from Ashburton, he vowed to crackdown on anti-social behaviour and those causing misery to others.

Less than a year later PCSO Macleod has been commended for his work in the community.

An Exmouth policeman has been praised for his efforts in cracking down on anti-social behaviour in Littleham

Littleham’s new police community support officer Kevin Macleod has been commended for his work in the community after clamping down on anti-social behaviour.

When the PCSO joined Exmouth police last year, after moving roles from Ashburton, he vowed to crackdown on anti-social behaviour and those causing misery to others.

Less than a year later PCSO Macleod has been commended for his work in the community.

Superintendent Chris Eastwood, police commander for the areas of Exeter, East and Mid Devon rewarded the PCSO with a certificate for his ‘professionalism and tenacity’ in resolving anti-social behaviour in the community.

Devon and Cornwall police said PCSO Macleod successfully secured a house closure order on an address in Littleham in October 2012.

The premises was the cause of ‘long-term anti-social behaviour in the community’, police said.

A Devon and Cornwall police spokesperson said PCSO Macleod took a ‘lead role’ in the application process, finding quality witness evidence from local residents.

“He did this without compromising their identity, with exceptional empathy and witness care skills,” the spokesperson said. “He undertook various research to support the application and prepared workable documents to assist the prosecuting counsel.

“PCSO Macleod worked tirelessly to support vulnerable witnesses through the process.

“Without his intuitive approach and tenacity, the application may well have failed.

“The success of the case has greatly improved the quality of life for the local community.”

Supt Eastwood awarded a number of police officers for their selfless acts of bravery and ‘diligent examples of professionalism’ in frontline policing.

The ceremony, at the Guildhall, Exeter, was attended by Devon police commander Chief Superintendent Paul Davies, SC Superintendent Andy Turner, Exmouth Mayor John Humphreys and representatives from Exeter City Council.

Supt Eastwood said: “These awards recognise the excellent work that goes on across the policing area, both on the frontline and behind the scenes.

“Their bravery and professionalism help keep the communities of Exeter, East and Mid Devon safe.

“I am proud to command such a skilled and hard working team of officers.”
