” A Fine Example”
Dan Bevan, 29, was posted to Rye after qualifying as a PCSO in May 2004. He has done great work in the town. He has been partly responsible for the dramatic fall in the crime rate, especially vandalism, in Rye and was nominated for his hard work by Hastings and Rye MP Michael Foster.
Mr Foster said the Prime Minister told Mr Bevan he was a “fine example” and residents are lucky to have him. Dan described the trip to Downing Street as a fantastic experience. “I was so proud to be nominated.”
He spoke with Mr Blair, MPs Jack Straw and Margaret Beckett. Mr Bevan was one of 80 people from around the UK invited to a special reception in recognition of their work in the local community. Chief Insp Rob Carden of the Sussex Police said: “I am absolutely delighted that Dan has been recognised for the positive contribution he has made. He epitomises everything good about PCSOs.”
