PCSO Paula Perry
Paula works as the local PCSO in the Lawrence Weston area of Bristol, and over the past year Paula has driven forward our response to the local issue of fly grazing by the Travelling Community. Paula has tirelessly worked with the travelling community and other agencies to bring a complete stop to the fly grazing As a result of this work she has built a fantastic relationship with the local Travelling Community.
Paula said: “It’s a real honour to be the first PCSO to win this award. The most important part for me was making sure that we were able to apply the law to ensure that horses were safe and I worked very hard to build relationships with local animal charity’s and the council. Building trust within the travelling community wasn’t easy and now we have a very good working relationship.”
