List of Appearances

Sergeant Melanie Ryder' is upbeat, ballsy and straight-talking. If she had a mission statement, it would be 'Life’s for living. Go for it!' This is a woman who lights up a room with a ready laugh and bright smile. However, she’s also tough and commands respect because she won’t compromise anyone. If her direct approach causes offence, it won’t last – no one can stay angry with her for long (well, maybe the crims). Mel’s a great team player; her courage and strength mean she’s a great person to have on side and her bright smile is infectious!

Mel passed her Sergeants exams in March 2014 and was Promoted to Sergeant by Superintendent Jack Meadows much to her delight and her first congratulations was her former Sergeant now Inspector Dale Smith; Mel's Supervisor when she was a PC was believed to be Sergeant Jo Masters but now that shes joined the team along with her and Callum Stone, Mel looks forward to supervising new PCs who come to Sunhill
