Police Constable Carson was assigned to the case when Bev Unwin reported Charlie Stubbs for forcing his way into her flat and for his threatening behaviour in July 2005. She arrived at the Rovers Return Inn public house to question Charlie. Charlie told her how Bev broke into the Builder's Yard and stole invoices and letters. The policeman gave Bev a ticking off, telling her she was lucky Charlie didn't want to press charges for theft. In August of the same year, Les Battersby went to the police station to try to claim an engagement ring in lost property as his own. Instead, he was questioned for stealing the ring by a sergeant, until Carson confirmed he was not the suspect she had previously encountered, and Les's partner Cilla Brown backed up his alibi that he was in Spain at the time of the robbery. Later in November, the constable was assigned to the case when Gail Platt called the police after her son David claimed that Jason Grimshaw attacked him. Gail's boyfriend Phil Nail interrupted and confirmed Jason's story that David had started the fight.
In March 2006, the policewoman arrived at Mike Baldwin's flat after he called the police when he got confused about his son Danny and his girlfriend Leanne Battersby being there, due to Alzheimer's Syndrome. When the police arrived, Mike was confused as to why they were there. Two months later, the officer arrived at 8 Coronation Street along with a male colleague when Gail called the police about someone sending her cards from her deceased husband Richard Hillman. Gail was relieved when they took her seriously and they took the card away for tests. Gail suggested that Phil was behind the whole thing. The officer later called to tell Gail that Phil was back in the area, leaving Gail confused whether to suspect David or Phil. The female officer later attended to the scene when Fred Elliott died of a stroke on his wedding day in October. Appearing on the Street again in December, the officer and her male colleague arrived to investigate Claire Peacock's allegations of the violence she heard next door between Tracy Barlow and Charlie Stubbs.
Arriving at the scene in January 2007 with the same male colleague she worked with the previous year, she investigated when Tracy called the police after Charlie beat her brother Peter. Tracy used the phone call to her advantage by playing the part of the battered wife. Later in May, the officer was part of the emergency crews who were deployed to the Street when Claire Peacock was trapped inside whilst her home was on fire.
The police officer arrived alone at the Rovers in January 2008 to collect details on the missing Ryan Connor, who ran away after learning that Michelle was not his biological mother. The officer was present at the station in October that year when Becky Granger was taken in for questioning by corrupt officer DC Hooch.
The officer was part of the emergency crews who were deployed to the Street in December 2010 when it was rocked by an explosion from The Joinery bar, followed by a derailed Tram from the wrecked viaduct. She explained to John Stape that Charlotte Hoyle, whom he had critically injured with a hammer, had a weak pulse.
PC Carson was called to the scene in February 2012 when, whilst kissing passionately in the builder's van, Jason Grimshaw and Rosie Webster accidently knocked the handbrake off and rolled the vehicle into another car. The car driver appeared to be suffering from whiplash and the police officer told Jason that she would have to issue him with a fixed penalty of £60 and three points on his driving license. In December, PC Carson and Malcolm Lagg turned up on the doorstep of 10a Coronation Street looking for Dennis Tanner on "council business". Tommy Duckworth directed them to the Rovers where Dennis was asked to identify Steve McDonald - the lollipop stick thief. The matter was swiftly dealt with when Steve agreed to return the stop sign.
- Unnnamed since her first appearance, PC Carson was given a surname in Episode 7794 (3rd February 2012).
