Police stars recognised at annual award ceremony

29 Jun 2018

The Commitment to Safeguarding Award, sponsored by Black Marble, was presented at Cambridgeshire Constabulary’s second annual awards ceremony on Friday, June 29. The evening acknowledged those who have truly gone above and beyond their role to help ‘Create a Safer Cambridgeshire’ through a number of award categories. The ceremony, held at Burgess Hall, St Ives, included food, drinks, music and presentations of awards by the Chief Constable Alec Wood and Penny Lancaster. The winner of the Commitment to Safeguarding Award was the Adult Abuse Investigation and Safeguarding Unit.

The nomination read: “The team has developed its expertise in a particularly specialist area of policing that often goes unnoticed. The AAISU deals daily with victims and offenders with very complex needs, and works closely with partners to protect some of the most vulnerable in our community.”

Chief Constable Alec Wood said: “It was an honour to congratulate this year’s award winners and runners up. “Every day our officers make a genuine difference to the lives of people in this county. Where most people run from danger, they are there running towards it, protecting the public and apprehending our most dangerous offenders. “Congratulations to everyone who received an award and thank you for all your hard work and dedication. Your achievements are truly humbling and make a huge difference to our communities. “I’m also grateful to our sponsors whose generous contributions helped us fund the evening and hold such a special ceremony to recognise all our stars.”

Police and Crime Commissioner Jason Ablewhite added: “I am delighted we are celebrating the success of our officers, staff and volunteers. There’s a real sense of duty to constantly support the public often in very dangerous circumstances. “The award ceremony highlights the tremendous achievements of an exceptional few, but also shows the unconditional duty of all officers and staff who serve our community.”

The event also raised £984 for the charity Mind, as chosen by staff, through a raffle of prizes donated by the award sponsors and companies the force has worked with over the past 12 months, as well as a special prize donated by Rod Stewart. Attendees heard stories of exceptional performance, professionalism and commitment and rewarded those who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to help protect the people of Cambridgeshire.
