Thames Valley Police has launched its tenth annual Community Policing Awards, which aims to find the neighbourhood police officers and staff who have made the greatest contribution to addressing the concerns of local residents over the past year.

There are awards for community officer of the year, police community support officer (PCSO) of the year, special constable of the year, student officer of the year and volunteer of the year.

Assistant Chief Constable Steve Rowell, who is responsible for local policing and chairs the judging panel, said: “This is our annual celebration of the work we do to make communities better and safe places to live. Help us to recognise those community police officers, PCSOs, specials and volunteers who have made a positive impact in your community. Let us know who deserves recognition. Tell us about them by April 8, the deadline for nominations.”
