Meet the new PC recruits making a positive impact in West Sussex
Main article content
Accompanied by his coach PC Matt Welch, Zac joined enforcement officers in the search of a property in the Chichester area in August where he uncovered the items – part of a haul of more than 75 illegal weapons and imitation firearms seized at the address. A woman was arrested on suspicion of importing prohibited weapons and has been released under investigation.
“For me, the most significant incident Kodie and I have been to was when we responded, alongside other officers, to reports of a baby being physically abused in the street. We took him into police protection and got him the medical care he needed.
“It was decided he was to go into foster care. It was a very difficult decision as taking a baby away from their parent is obviously a last resort, but in this case I believe it was the right one and meant that we were able to protect the baby from harm.”
“What appeals about working in safeguarding investigations is that you get to work with people longer term and see them through the process.”

Zac's goal is to work in public order policing: “I’m excited about my first stage of public order training that is coming up. That’s the area I would like to specialise in first – and then in 5 years’ time I hope to join the Firearms Unit.”
