A NEW sergeant has joined the police team in Clevedon.

Sgt Deborah Budd has taken on the role after Sgt Gareth Starr left the post after two years in the town.

Antisocial behaviour and other community priorities will be the focus of Sgt Budd's work in Clevedon and the surrounding areas, including Kenn, Kingston Seymour, Cleeve, Claverham, Yatton, Congresbury, Wrington and Redhill.

Sgt Budd said: "I am delighted to join such a committed and dedicated team and look forward to meeting members of the local community as I settle into the role.

"I would particularly like to encourage local residents to contact us with their concerns, whether it is via telephone, email or coming along to a PACT meeting or beat surgery. We are keen to address the issues that matter to you."

Sgt Budd, aged 43, lives in Weston.

She has been a police officer in North Somerset for 23 years and has experience in a range of roles including emergency response in Clevedon, beat manager in Churchill and prisoner handling.

After his time in Clevedon, Sgt Gareth Starr has moved to join the emergency response team in Weston.

He said: "I am leaving Clevedon with fond memories of the policing team and local residents.

"My new role will allow me to brush up on some old skills and learn some new ones in the process.
