New Neighbourhood Sergeant for Stevenage

11 Jan 2022
  • New Neighbourhood Sergeant for central Stevenage.

  • Sian Wilkins moves from response policing to neighbourhood team leader.

  • Her focus will be drugs related crime and ASB.

The Central Stevenage Safer Neighbourhood Team has welcomed a new sergeant. Sian Wilkins was previously a response sergeant in Stevenage, so she joins the team armed with plenty of local knowledge.

Sian joined Hertfordshire Constabulary in 2009 and worked as a response officer in Hertsmere for two years. From there she joined the Scorpion Team, which works to proactively target those who are involved in acquisitive crime, and then became a tactical officer with the Operational Support Group for the next six years.

After passing her sergeants exams in 2017, Sian moved to Stevenage to lead a team of response officers and has now decided to move to local neighbourhood policing.

“My career so far has been predominantly front-line policing, dealing with emergency calls or reacting to situations, and this is what I enjoy. However, it is now time for a change, and I would like to use my experience to tackle ongoing problems, and work at finding long term solutions to some of our local policing issues. Working with my team we will be focusing on positive action to help combat anti-social behaviour and drug related crime.

“Having worked in the town for some time, I understand the problems and am looking forward to working with our local communities to tackle them. The great thing about neighbourhood policing is that you get to really know your local area, spend time with the local people and concentrate on long term issues. I am looking forward to getting out and about in our communities.
