Chief in­spec­tor makes a re­turn

Ayrshire Post - - Special Report -

when you’re work­ing your­self is in the win­ter you are work­ing with your lo­cal com­mu­nity, but when you’re work­ing through­out the sum­mer time, you have the tourists - this is when the is­land com­mu­nity went from 1500 upto 15,000 a day and you are still work­ing your­self with the help of spe­cial con­sta­bles. This is when you learn your peo­ple skills. I was there for three and a half years - you in­volve your­self with the com­mu­nity - it was just amaz­ing.

“It was a high­light for per­sonal rea­sons, for fam­ily rea­sons, for friends you make for life and for the ground­ing it gives you in get­ting to know peo­ple.

“I came back to Ayr in 2002 as an op­er­a­tional po­lice of­fi­cer then I left the Di­vi­sion and worked in na­tional se­cu­rity for a while which was re­ally in­ter­est­ing.

“It got to 2011 and I wanted to come back to op­er­a­tional polic­ing so I re­turned to Ayr as an op­er­a­tional in­spec­tor.

“For the third time in my ca­reer, I’m back. To be a po­lice of­fi­cer, an in­spec­tor and now get the po­si­tion of Area Com­man­der in Ayr and to have lived, stud­ied and met my wife in Ayr, both per­sonal and pro­fes­sional is just great.

“The whole ethos of polic­ing, for me, is com­mu­nity.

“I am ab­so­lutely de­lighted to be Area Com­man­der of South Ayr­shire and I would like to thank Chief In­spec­tor Gary I` An­son for ev­ery­thing that he has done for South Ayr­shire and the key role that he has played over the last few years.”

Derek Frew The dad- of- two has been an­nounced as the new Area Com­man­der for South Ayr­shire
