The hard work and dedication of police officers and staff at Suffolk Constabulary, and others who support their work, have been recognised at a ceremony.
Dignitaries including Suffolk High Sheriff Geoffrey Probert and Police and Crime Commissioner Tim Passmore joined Chief Constable Gareth Wilson for the event, held at Suffolk New College.
A number of officers and staff were recognised for their work including a detective constable who supported victims and families through a sexual abuse case which resulted in the offender being jailed for 26 years, a police dog and handler who tracked for 75 minutes to find two offenders following an attempted break-in and the Serious Collision Investigation Team who deal with fatal and serious injury crashes.
Chief Constable Gareth Wilson thanked the principal, staff and students of the college for their assistance with hosting the evening, and praised the work of the award winners.
“Individually we heard remarkable examples of service and dedication. It is important that staff from all areas of the organisation are recognised for their hard work and support and I would like to thank everyone for their continued commitment to serving our communities.”
Tim Passmore, Police and Crime Commissioner for Suffolk, said: “These annual awards recognise that there are many remarkable people working within the Constabulary – as officers, Specials, staff and volunteers.
“Each year we see fantastic examples of service and dedication in the county and I am very pleased to be involved in this ceremony to celebrate the good work of those who have gone the extra mile to provide exceptional service. I congratulate them all on their success.”
