PCSO Michael Dannat has joined the Louth Rural team, and PCSO Ian Porter will soon be on the beat in the town.
Ian, a qualified pilot, joins the force after a 35 year engineering and sales career in the truck industry. He is looking forward to facing the challenges his new role will bring.
He said: “I really enjoy working with our communities and I was ready for a career change, so I wanted to do something that enabled me to get involved with all elements.
“I want to be well known in the town centre and I’m looking forward to working with local businesses to promote the Shop Watch online project and helping them tackle the issues that matter to them”.
Michael joins the rural team based at Holton le Clay following a number of years with Royal Mail and a local ceramic tiling firm. He is very community focused and is also Crew Manager at his local community fire station in Louth, where he has worked for over five years.
Michael is very keen on getting to know the rural community better and understanding the issues which local people face.
The two new arrivals replace PCSO Kerry Foster, who has successfully become a police constable, and PCSO Zaza Warren, who has transferred to the Horncastle NPT and now covers the Wragby area.
