Welcome to our New Police Sargeant

Police Sergeant Jenna Jones has recently arrived from the Rural Task Force to bring her wealth of experience to the community of Pocklington and the surrounding towns and villages.
Based at Pocklington Police Station, Jenna took time out from her busy day to tell us what challenges she will be facing and how she’s already making an impact in her local community.
Jenna’s patch covers around 300 square miles of the East Riding of Yorkshire. Including Market Weighton, up to Stamford Bridge, Wetwang and our furthest western boundary is East Cottingwith over near the Derwent.
We asked Jenna more about her patch, she said, “We come under the Goole cluster, so our neighbouring policing teams are Howdenshire and Goole and is under Inspector Jon Powell who is also the Inspector for the Rural Task Force, from where I have just come.
“I am very proud of the achievements of the Rural Task Force, in just under two years with limited resources, we achieved a great deal. We are recognised as the best police wildlife team in the country.
“I have moved back into core neighbourhood policing as the Rural Task Force was very specialised. I want to continue to progress in my career and bring the local policing team together for the benefit of the local community.
“Pocklington was my neighbourhood policing patch up until five years ago and I had been here for five years when I left, so I know the area well and I feel like I am coming home in some respects. Yes, things have changed but I know this area really well and understand the changes and challenges ahead.
