Tributes have been paid to a Bury St Edmunds PCSO who has died.
PCSO Sue Medcraft died yesterday. She was 55.
She had served with Suffolk Police as a PCSO since 2007, firstly on the Bury East/West Safer Neighbourhood Team, (SNT) where she worked on the Howard/Mildenhall Estate.
“She established herself as an officer who was there to help. She quickly gained the trust of the community, and living on the estate she was regularly seen on and off duty assisting residents with day to day problems,” said
Safer Neighbourhood Team Sgt Davy Hill.
Sue moved to Bury Central SNT in May 2012 carrying out important work on The Vinefields.
“Once more she gained the trust and respect of the residents within that area.
“Sue was a hardworking, efficient and diligent officer who was held in high regard by her community and colleagues alike,” said Sgt Hill.
“Nothing was ever too much trouble for Sue and she could always cheer you up with her infectious smile.
“Sue will be sorely missed by us all and leaves a very big hole within Suffolk Constabulary, Bury St Edmunds SNT and the community she served.”
