Their areas include Hasland, Birdholme, Grangewood, Boythorpe, Brampton, Walton and Ashgate.
Finally, PCSO Charlotte Spinks, not pictured, joins the Newbold and Brockwell Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team.
Before starting their career in community policing, some of their jobs included working in retail, in a pub, with young people and even as a bespoke furniture maker who had previously worked for Ed Sheeran.
Their role is to help maintain and strengthen close relationships with councils, neighbourhood groups, schools and businesses around the county and supporting PCSOs to address any community concerns in a timely way. In addition, they will be seeking to increase links with local charities and other organisations that support vulnerable people.
PCSO Supervisor Adcock said: “We are pleased to welcome five new PCSOs to our Safer Neighbourhood policing teams throughout the Chesterfield and Staveley areas.
“I’m sure Ari, Chris, Melissa, Levi and Charlotte will be a valuable asset to community policing, working alongside their colleagues to be a visible presence in the area and to target any concerns around lower level crime and anti-social behaviour.”
