Countess Wear & Topsham neighbourhood policing team

PCSO Sarah Haworth

I've been working for Devon & Cornwall Police for over 8 years. In this time I've had numerous roles, starting  in the Intelligence Unit as a Briefing Officer, then joining the Public Protection Unit as part of the Safeguarding Team working for children & vulnerable adults. I have also trained as Special Constable working with Response & Neighbourhood teams in Mid Devon and I have spent the last 3 years as a PCSO in Exeter.

I cover the St Loyes, Countess wear & Topsham areas and love being out on patch every day. This is a fantastic job and I will be here for a long time to come! If you see me whilst out on patrol please feel free to pop over and say hello!

Sgt Martin Burrow

I have been a Police Officer for 15 years across Exeter, East & Mid Devon.

I was responsible for the Neighbourhood Policing Team In Honiton for three years where we took big strides in reducing crime and anti-social behaviour through working together with the community and partner organisations to build information and take enforcement – both criminal and through civil orders such as ASBO’s.

After taking a role at Police Headquarters for 18 months I have now come to Exeter where I am now responsible for the Neighbourhood Policing Team covering the South-East quarter of the city. We have already seen ASB in the Priory area reduce dramatically and that has been down to the local community providing support and good professional working relationships with our partners including Exeter City Council and local schools. I look forward to working with you, the community, to ensure this positive work continues to improve.

PCSO Anthony Keller

I've been on the Neighbourhood Team in Exeter for several years. Starting in the city centre, I then worked in St James for 3 years and am now based in the Topsham and St Loyes areas. I enjoy getting out and about and meeting new people, being involved in  communities and working with young people.

If you have any concerns or issues that you would like to raise with the team, then please email us via the "contact " section and we will get back to you.
