Thank you for taking the time to nominate is the message from Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens and Acting Chief Constable John Long, following the closure of this year’s nomination period.
Over 240 nominations were submitted for this year’s awards ceremony, recognising the hard work of neighbourhood beat teams, local beat managers, police community support officers (PCSOs), special constables, police staff, cadets and volunteers.
Nominations will now be forwarded to a panel of judges including Sue Mountstevens, John Long, the Bristol Post, Western Daily Press and other key sponsors, who will meet in September to select the winners for each of the three policing areas.
Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “Once again I am overwhelmed by the number of nominations that have been sent to us. It means so much that so many people take the time to recognise those who work hard to keep our communities’ safe and feeling safe.
“To hear from you about the great work that is happening in your local area is invaluable and is what makes these awards so special. I am incredibly grateful that you’ve taken the time to share your experiences and examples with us and on behalf of all the officers, staff and volunteers, I would like to say thank you.”
Acting Chief Constable John Long said: “The Neighbourhood policing awards have become one of the highlights of our policing year. The fact that it is the public that make the nominations for me makes this an incredibly worthwhile event. It reminds us all of the importance of policing our neighbourhoods throughout Avon and Somerset.”
Following the final judging panel, we will announce the winners for each of the policing areas, for each category. On Thursday, November 26, a glittering awards ceremony will be held at Cadbury House, Congresbury and overall force winners for each of the categories will be announced.
