Neighbourhood Policing Awards 2014
More than 200 people have already put forward nominations for this year’s Neighbourhood Policing Awards. With two weeks left until the closing date, make sure your local beat manager, PCSO, special constable, police staff member or community volunteer is in with a chance of picking up an award at this year’s ceremony in November.Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: "I am delighted that so many of you are taking the time to nominate your neighbourhood teams, officers, staff and local volunteers. The nominations we have already received highlight the caring nature of call handlers, the life-saving actions of officers, the selfless nature of volunteers and the support of neighbourhood policing teams. "We are overwhelmed by the number of entries we have received so far but always welcome more examples of where local policing teams are supporting you and your local community and are worthy of an award." Acting Chief Constable John Long said: "At Avon and Somerset Constabulary we strive every day to keep our communities safe and ensure that those guilty of committing crimes are brought to justice. This would not be possible without the continued dedication, commitment and hard work of our neighbourhood teams, police staff and volunteers day in, day out and these awards are about recognising and celebrating that."I hope people take a few minutes to put forward their nominations as it really will mean a lot to their teams." The awards recognise the outstanding work of Neighbourhood Policing teams and individuals in the following categories: Neighbourhood Beat Team of the Year, Neighbourhood Beat Manager of the Year; PCSO (Police Community Support Officer) of the Year; Special Constable of the Year; Volunteer of the Year and the Outstanding Customer Service Award.
