New bobby on the beat


A new police officer is patrolling the streets of Middlecroft, Poolsbrook, Inkersall and Duckmanton.

PC Adam Case is the latest member of the area’s Safer Neighbourhood policing team, taking over from PC Stuart Hind, who has moved onto the Operational Support Team.

Adam has been a police officer for more than five years, spending the first three years of his career as a response officer in the Alfreton area.

Before joining the team, PC Case was part of the Operational Support Team in the Chesterfield, Bolsover, North East Derbyshire and Amber Valley areas.

The Operational Support Team is responsible for supporting other policing units in the area during operations. Their work includes helping with warrants, traffic operations and other proactive initiatives.

He said: “I started on the Safer Neighbourhood team last week and I’m currently getting to know the local community, as well as getting out on patrol in my area.

“My aim is to find out the concerns of our local residents, to get involved in ways to resolve them and to continue the good work of PC Hind and my colleagues.”

PC Case was also one of the officers who competed in the national Redbull Soapbox race in summer 2013, to raise money for Ashgate Hospice.

Together with his colleague, PC Stephen Browett, they built their own racing car in the design of a police van and raised more than £150 for charity.

Outside of work Adam enjoys walking his dog, and is currently busy with renovating and carrying out improvements to both his home and a car as a personal project.
