Worcestershire police officers and police community support officers were commended earlier this month for outstanding bravery, meticulous eye for detail, going the extra mile in creating stronger community relationships and great leadership that realises successful outcomes.
Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion said “Police officers and staff often go above and beyond to serve our communities and make them safer, and it’s important we take the time to recognise this. These awards recognise those who’ve acted professionally, bravely and commendably and I would like to thank them, on behalf of their communities, for all that they’ve done.”
Chief Superintendent Tom Harding said: “It was especially pleasing to see the family and friends of those receiving awards attending the evening; this ceremony was as much for them as for their loved ones and their chance to see them recognised for their achievements and bravery. For officers and staff it is their family and friends that have the role of supporting and enabling them to undertake their roles. Due to the nature of their work, staff will often return home after seeing some of the most harrowing situations. They will deal with some of the most dangerous and unpleasant people and will often act as the first response in helping some of the most vulnerable people within our society. This is why the role family and friends play in supporting them is so important and on behalf of them and the Worcestershire Command Teams it was pleasure to be able to thank them in person on the night.
“The awarding of these commendations recognises fantastic work. It also recognises that there are many more in Worcestershire, West Mercia, and nationally who deliver exceptional levels of service and regularly go above and beyond to keep us all safe.”
