Policing area winners for each category of this year’s Neighbourhood Policing Awards have been announced following the final stage of judging for this year’s ceremony.

The first round of judging took place in August, when a panel of judges representing the Constabulary and Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner sifted through over 330 nominations.

The shortlisted nominees then went on to be considered by a panel which included Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens, Acting Chief Constable John Long and sponsors Richard Walker from BT and Paul Hackett from Key Forensics.

Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: "The calibre of this year’s nominations was exceptional and reading each and every one of them it is clear to see the difference you are making to your communities.

"Comments such as ‘this officer’s passion and dedication to making the neighbourhood a safer place for all is unfailing’ just shows the value and appreciation of our officers, staff and volunteers by local people.

"I would like to congratulate everyone who was nominated for this year’s awards. You all should feel proud of your achievements and take comfort from the fact that this does not go unnoticed amongst the communities you serve."

The panel selected policing area winners for each of the seven award categories. The overall winners for Avon and Somerset in each category will be announced at a special awards dinner on November 13 at Cadbury House, Congresbury.

Acting Chief Constable John Long said: "Once again the standard of nominations this year has been superb. Reading through the submissions I have felt a great sense of pride at all the hard work our officers and staff are doing day in, day out to keep our communities safe and feeling safe.

"From reading the citations it is clear the winners have had a real impact on their communities and have made a significant difference to the lives of those they serve; they truly deserve this recognition.

"A huge congratulations must go to everyone who has been nominated in this year’s awards; with more than 300 nominations being received in total it’s testament to the hard work and commitment shown by all of our neighbourhood and response teams, specials and volunteers in Avon and Somerset. I am truly grateful for all of your continued support and hard work."
