New Licensing Officer for Gloucestershire Police

PC Jaine Simner has been appointed as the new Licensing Officer for Gloucestershire Constabulary.

In her new role Jaine will oversee 3,000 licensed premises within the county, working with them to make sure people out socialising in Gloucestershire are kept safe.

As the lead for licensing issues Jaine will give guidance on alcohol licenses at pubs, clubs and restaurants and will work to address any problems at venues that may arise.

She will also represent the Constabulary at hearings and reviews for licenses at these venues.

She is also working on a new licensing policy in conjunction with the office of the Police and Crime Commissioner and the county’s senior police officers.

Jaine has 28 years policing experience, both here in Gloucestershire and previously in the West Midlands.

Before being appointed to the county’s policing lead for licensing issues she worked as a licensing officer for the Stroud area.

Following her appointment, PC Simner said: “I’m looking forward to this new role and hope to visit and support as many of the licensed premises in the county as I can as well as working closely with out partner agencies such as local authorities, Trading Standards and Environmental Health.

“All my work will be in union with the Police Commissioner’s plan for ‘Safer days and Safer Nights’ and will have keeping the people of Gloucestershire safe at it’s very core.”
