PCSO Charlie Symes

Charlie Symes joined the Constabulary in 2017 and is getting to grips with a large chunk of the district including Bourton on the Water and Stow on the Wold. Before joining us Charlie he was a professional DJ working the bars and clubs around Cheltenham. He maintains this interest, while off duty, providing music and entertainment at weddings.

PC Jason Page

I joined Gloucestershire Constabulary in January 2001 after serving 14 years in the Army. I spent the first part of my career at Barton Street Police Station in Gloucester and then 5 years in the Constabulary’s Intelligence Department based at Headquarters.

I was posted to Stow on the Wold Police Station in October 2009 where I spent a few years as a Response Officer before volunteering to be part of the Neighbourhood Policing Team which is my current role. My day to day work includes amongst other things - dealing with Crime, Anti-Social Behaviour, Speeding, Neighbour complaints, School presentations on Internet Security, Safeguarding the vulnerable in our communities, liaising with local Businesses, Parish Councils, Schools and with other Agencies such as Housing Authorities.

I particularly enjoy meeting members of the Community and then maintaining links with them in order for them to have direct contact with the Dedicated Police Officer for their Area.

PC PC Ashley Weller (Rural and Wildlife Crime)

I am PC Ashley Weller, and I have been working in the police for 12 ½ years as of June 2018. 7 of those years were on a response unit in Birmingham and the remainder in the Cotswolds and Stroud.

My sole role in the Cotswolds is a Wildlife and Rural Crime Officer, where I deal with anything from farming issues in which police attention is required, wildlife crime problems, through to poaching and general rural crime.

I have an obsessive passion for the countryside and looking after it.

This sounds cheesy, but my job is partly my hobby. Not the paper work or corporate bit, but going out in to the country side and seeing some of the sights I see. I feel very lucky to work where I do.


Sgt Garrett Gloyn

A local lad who joined the Constabulary in 1996, I have spent almost all of my service working in the Stroud and Cotswolds districts. Promoted to Sergeant in 2004 I am now part of the Cotswolds Neighbourhood Policing Team and supervise a team of Constables and Community Support Officers. I love the variety of work that comes my way on a daily basis and get a great deal of job satisfaction from the impact that the teams work can have on the quality of life for residents in the district.

I am a keen runner, enjoy travelling, walking my two Golden Retrievers. 

Sgt Andrew Wood

Sgt Wood joined Gloucestershire Constabulary as a Special Constable in Cirencester back in 1993, before joining the regular police in 1996. As a Police Constable, he initially worked in Charlton Kings and Cheltenham Town Centre, with occasional periods in Tewkesbury. After a stint on surveillance, he was posted to Gloucester South, covering the Hardwicke, Quedgeley , Podsmead and Tuffley areas of the city, and also as a guard in custody. Following promotion in 2003, he continued to work in these areas, with occasional periods as duty sgt for the whole of the city or the Forest of Dean.

In 2008 he was posted, initially to Cirencester, but then joined the duty sgt cadre covering the Cotswolds and Stroud areas. During that time he was temporarily promoted to Inspector, supervising the support services such as crime prevention, licensing, firearms and neighbourhood watch.

A return to Cirencester in 2011 has seen him perform roles as response Sgt and further periods of Inspector duties. In January 2018 he became part of the Neighbourhood team.

In addition to his day to day role, Sgt Wood is one of the constabularies Hostage and Crisis Negotiators and also coordinates searches for lost people. Involved with the Police Cadet scheme since its inception, he has recently stepped back from that function, but still provides inputs to their sessions.

Away from the police, Sgt Wood has an avid interest in aviation, and likes to play the guitar. A keen gym user, he holds a black belt in Kickboxing.

LPSO Darren Thomas

I have been working for the Constabulary for nine years.  I have been in several different roles during this time, but my current role is a Local Policing Support Officer and my responsibilities are mainly behind the scenes, looking after the police stations in the Cotswolds, and ensuring the officers have everything they need to carry out their roles in serving the public.

Over the last few months I’ve started attending Police Points and Community Events, bringing along a selection of Crime Prevention items for you to view and buy.  It has been great to get out into the community and to meet the public.

In my spare time I love to go walking and enjoy holidays in my caravan.
