SERGEANT James Honeywill has recently been appointed as one of Newquay's Neighbourhood Team leaders.
He said: "I have been a police officer for 14 years; the majority of which have been spent here at Newquay. I began my police career at Exeter and moved to Newquay as a patrol constable in 2001.
"I performed numerous roles at Newquay between 2001 and 2012 including neighbourhood beat manager, custody sergeant, response sergeant, patrol sergeant and have also performed acting inspector duties several times.
"In November 2012 I moved to Bodmin to perform acting inspector duties and from there moved to St Austell. Three weeks ago I returned to Newquay as one of the two Neighbourhood Team leaders; a role I have been keen to perform for some time.
"I am delighted to return to Newquay; an area I know really well. I thoroughly enjoy policing the town and look forward to working closely with our partners and engaging with the public to deliver on matters really important to them. My colleague Sergeant Fox and I manage an experienced team of neighbourhood beat managers and PCSOs and we are, as a team, committed to providing a first-rate neighbourhood police service to the communities of Newquay, St Columb and the surrounding area. We can't be everywhere, but we will do our best to be as visible as possible in our communities, dealing with issues that matter to you and providing reassurance and deterring crime and antisocial behaviour.
"We are more than happy to discuss any concerns with you and there are several ways you can contact us, either by phoning 101, calling into Newquay police station or by e-mailing the neighbourhood website.
"I look forward to the challenges my new role will bring, and I will strive to do my best to deliver the service you want and deserve."
