The Community Policing Awards 2012
Have you been impressed with the service given to your community by a member of your neighbourhood policing team?
Residents of Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire are being asked to nominate Community Police Officers, Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs), volunteers, and Special Constables who have had a positive impact on the their local community.
The Community Officer of the Year Awards, sponsored by Reliance, recognises staff who have made the greatest contribution to addressing the concerns of local residents over the past year.
Assistant Chief Constable Richard Bennett said: “The Community Policing Awards is an aspect of this job that I particularly enjoy and value. It is an opportunity to pay tribute to the important grassroots work that neighbourhood policing teams carry out in their communities.
“The nominations show a range of innovative and effective initiatives carried out by neighbourhood teams to address the concerns of residents, and it is clear that these are greatly appreciated by the people we serve.”
The awards will be taking place in October this year and nominations will be open from 7 July to 10 August. The categories you can vote for are: Community Police Officers, PCSOs, volunteers and Special Constables.
Members of the public and partner organisations who would like to nominate someone for an award can do so by submitting a nomination form on the Thames Valley Police website.
Or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Hard copies of the form are also available from your local police station.
