Do you know a police officer, member of police staff or volunteer who has gone above and beyond to help your family or worked tirelessly to improve your community?
If you do, now is your opportunity to recognise them.
The Community Policing Awards give residents of Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire the opportunity to nominate the officer, staff member and volunteer who has made the greatest contribution to their community over the past year for recognition.
This year's categories are:
- Community Police Officer of the Year
- Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) of the Year
- Special Constable of the Year
- Volunteer of the Year
- Cadet of the Year
You can also nominate someone for the Diversity Champion of the Year, which recognises those who have worked to increase diversity in the Force or improved engagement with an underrepresented group, and for the Community Contribution Award, which recognises those who have made the biggest difference to someone's life in the community over the past year. If you would like to nominate a member of police staff, you can use the Community Contribution Award category.
Nominations will close on Monday 27th April, after which a team of judges will decide the final winners. The winners will then be announced on Monday 29th June.
Assistant Chief Constable Alan Baldwin, who is one of the judges, said: "Neighbourhood policing is at the heart of the service in protecting communities and helping to prevent and detect crime. It is the bedrock of what we do.
"The Community Policing Awards are an opportunity to pay tribute to those essential people who work tirelessly on behalf of the communities they serve and who are nominated for their great work by those local people.
