Experienced officers, Sergeant Duncan Hall, 41, and Sergeant Nic Achilleos, 32, are joining the Stevenage Safer Neighbourhood Teams based at Stevenage Police Station.

Sgt Achilleos first joined Herts Constabulary as a Special Constable in 2004 and then later decided to become a full time police officer. Since this decision, he has worked on the response teams in Cheshunt and Hertford.

He said: “It is a very versatile role and I know the residents of Stevenage are very supportive.”

Sgt Hall joined the force in 2008 – he has been part of the SNT in Cheshunt and also worked with the Stevenage police response teams.

He added: “I am looking forward to working with partner agencies to address key issues.”

Two officers from the ‘Police Now’ graduate leadership scheme – a training programme that places university graduates in challenging communities and utilizes their problem solving skills - are also joining the Stevenage team this month.
