18th March 2014 - Press Release

Port welcomes new recruits full of determination and dedication



The Port of Dover has welcomed four new Port of Dover Police Officers to Europe's busiest international ferry port as they commit to playing their part in meeting the Port's vision of becoming the best port in the world for the benefit of customers and the community.

Dedicated to the safety and security of the Port, the 13 million customers who use it and the local community, the appointment of new officers reflects the ongoing commitment of the Port of Dover Police to provide a visible and effectiveness police service to the Port community.

Superintendent Paul Wilczek, Chief Officer for Port of Dover Police said:

“It’s fantastic to see such enthusiastic and committed new officers joining the Port of Dover Police force which has such a great heritage of serving its Port community.”

The four new recruits are: Donna Shorter, who was previously a Courts Warrants Officer and a Kent Police Special Constable where she performed the role of A/Section Officer, responsible for up to 15 officers. Jake Griffiths has a BSc (Honours) degree in Crime and Policing and previously held the position of Freight Co-ordinater within the Port for DFDS Seaways. Jennifer Wheatley is a Master of Mathematics (2.1 Honours) and worked with Kent Police as a civilian employee in the Police National Computer (PNC) Bureau.  Sarah Lavender was formerly a Community Safety Officer for Shepway District Council and has an Advanced NVQ Level 3 in Business and Administration and a Btec Level 3 in Neighbourhood Nuisance and Anti-Social Behaviour.   

Tim Waggott, Chief Executive, Port of Dover, added:

“I am delighted that the Port of Dover Police has been able to recruit people who are full of such enthusiasm and with relevant academic and employment experience.  I am sure that they will be highly valued by the Port’s customers and community whom they will serve. I wish them well in their careers within the police service, joining at such a exciting time for the Port and for Dover.”
