She applies for a position at Sun Hill as a Police Community Support Officer and her potential to become a police constable is then recognised by Sergeant Dale Smith. Despite several mistakes and lapses in judgement, Smith encourages her to consider training at Hendon to become a full-time police officer. Eventually she chooses to undertake the training and returns to Sun Hill as a PC, where she soon realises that the job is causing her to neglect her relationship with her two sons. Inspector Gold insists that she continue being a police officer instead of resigning and transfer to a unit at Barton Street where her hours will better suit her being a single parent. She puts in for a transfer from Sun Hill to Barton Street.
