Countess Wear & Topsham neighbourhood policing team

A. Sgt Shane Nickels

I have been a police officer since 2007, beginning my career as a volunteer and then becoming a full time officer in 2009.

I have a varied background in policing most recently in response and am looking forward to my new challenge in neighbourhood policing.

I am passionate about policing and am committed to ensuring Exeter remains a safe place to live and work.

PCSO Kevin Shore

I’m the newest member of the Neighbourhood Team and have recently joined Devon and Cornwall Police, something that I’ve aspired to do for a long time.

Having previously worked in retail I enjoy engaging with people and am very approachable, so if you see me out and about please feel free to flag me down and say hello.

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.

The total population of Topsham as recorded in the 2001 Census was 5,023, in 2,594 households. Topsham is an attractive Devon town situated on the Exe estuary. Although part of Exeter, it maintains a distinct identity. Loved by its locals, and savoured by those who visit, Topsham offers tourists and residents alike a mix of river walks, wildlife, unique shops and restaurants and provides a quiet space in the country to sit and watch the sailing boats go by. Also part of Topsham is the newly built Newcourt estate. Now well established, when complete will consist of over 3,000 households, it's own school, shops and facilities.

Countess Wear

The total population of Countess Wear including the Southbrook Estate as recorded in the 2001 Census was 9,378, in 3,619 households. Named after the Countess of Topsham who fought with the rulers of Exeter over loading rights and thus established the weir, hence the name. The ancient Countess Wear bridge, is the lowest crossing place on the tidal River Exe. Tourists are attracted to this part of the Exe floodplain by its wildlife hotspots and the historic paper mill.
