About My Role

PCSO David Atchinson

9186 PCSO David Atchinson

I am a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) in Blyth. I have been a PCSO since June 2011, but I have worked for Northumbria Police since 1987 in another civilian post. My role is to provide visible patrols and communication within the community to assist in the reduction of crime and disorder, gather intelligence and community engagement. I work closely with Police Officers to help provide public reassurance and community safety.

If you see me in your area please stop me and introduce yourself, alternatively you can send me an email via the contact link on this page.

My role as a Neighbourhood Beat Officer is to meet the needs of local communities, uphold the protection of life and property, maintain peace and encourage the reduction or prevention of crime through:

  • The identification of problems of crime, disorder and other quality of life issues experienced by all sections of the local community, particularly vulnerable groups.

  • Involvement in problem solving initiatives aimed at addressing the underlying causes of many of these issues.

  • Provision of a highly visible uniformed presence, aimed at reassuring the local community and reducing the fear of crime.

Please do get in touch if you have any policing issues you wish to bring to my attention.
