A new sergeant has taken charge of Pocklington and Wolds Weighton Neighbourhood Policing Team this week.

Timothy Morton has taken over the reigns as sergeant at Pocklington Police Station, replacing Dave Dosdale who has been temporarily promoted to Inspector of an incident response team and will be based at the divisional headquarters at Beverley.

Insp Dosdale said: “Tim is an excellent officer. As I did, Tim will spend an equal amount of time at Howden and Pocklington.

“I have been here for about eight months and I have thoroughly enjoyed the role and working in such a fabulous area for such fantastic people.”

He added: “It is possible I may be back later in the year but for now I’ll be at Beverley.”

Sgt Morton, who was previously based at Howden Police Station, did not want to speak about his new role when asked by the Pocklington Post.
