A POPULAR police community support officer will become a full-time police officer from Monday.

Steve Patton, 26, has been a PCSO in Berkhamsted for the past 51/2 years, but will now move onto new horizons.

He will join the intervention police team in Watford, tackling 999 calls from across Herts.

The plucky PC, who lives in Hemel Hempstead, said he has wanted to get his new job since he was about five years old.

He is not afraid of being hurt either: “I think any job is dangerous,” he said.
