Oakham Town and Barleythorpe

PC Joe Lloyd

Collar number: 1312

I joined Leicestershire Police in December 2001 having previously served in the Armed Forces. I started my career in Melton Mowbray where I served in several roles. In 2007 I joined an Immigration crime team that worked in partnership with the UK Border Agency. This role exposed me to multi agency working which has assisted me in my role as the Dedicated Neighbourhood Officer for Oakham and Barleythorpe.

I will be working closely with the rest of the neighbourhood team providing a visible police presence, identifying community issues by consulting you the public. I am very interested in Social Media especially how we as an small team can use it to ensure messages are seen by as many people as possible. Please join our social media feeds.

PC Joshua Ace

Collar number: 2988

I have been a Police Officer for over 8 years, beginning at Market Harborough, moving briefly to Loughborough and have covered Oadby and Wigston also. I joined the Uppingham Beat Team in April 2017, and am looking forward to the contrast in the work involved. My immediate previous role was held in Market Harborough where, as a Dedicated Neighbourhood Officer, I forged strong links with partner agencies and worked tirelessly to safeguard the vulnerable, reduce criminality, decrease anti-social behaviour and stop those causing harm in the community. My aim is to provide the local people of Uppingham an excellent quality of service in relation to local issues.

I look forward to meeting you when out and about on my beat.
