Craig Rogerson, a community cop based at Peebles Police Station in the North Community Policing Area, was very active with the local population.
He's the community beat officer for Walkerburn, Innerleithen and Peebles - which he has done exceptionally well, according to the community.
One of the feats he's well known for his dispersing the boyracer problem at Kingsmeadow carpark in Peebles. He's been instrumental at delivering cycling proficiency and also at resolving parking issues.
And since joining the Police in 2005, he's served in a number of roles including, response in both Peebles and Galashiels, in a plain clothes role within the Divisional Crime Unit and on a Major Investigations Team in Musselburgh.
He's also worked closely with Peebles, Innerleithen and Walkerburn Community Councils, and sat on the Tweeddale Community Safety Panel and Up2U management committee.
And he's always been passionate about keeping his beat one of the safest places to live in Scotland.
Katharine Mathison, secretary of Peebles Community Council says Craig will be missed.
She told the Peeblesshire News: "He was really, really super to work with - Craig was very helpful.
"And we've been very impressed with the way that he liases with the community council and the way he deals with issues.
"He's very professional and very approachable - we're really going to miss him."
She added: "We all wish him the best of luck in his new role and thank him for his tremendous service to the people in Tweeddale."
