Grenville Dowson

PCSO 5552 Grenville Dowson

I have worked as a PCSO for 12 years which most has been in the city centre. I have a passion for cycle theft and enjoy returning cycles to their rightful owners when possible. I cover just about anything and everything working in the City centre sometimes getting involved in the strangest incidents. I have built a good knowledge of people and places in the city and have a great rapport with the businesses and people visiting the city. Often I can be found working with other agencies such as the street Rangers, Council NEO’s, Make It York and the store and bar security. I really enjoy my job and hopefully I'm here to stay so I can continue to build bridges with businesses and people and promote NYP in a good light
