The Lord Ferrers Awards for volunteering in policing are inviting nominations for this year’s prizes.
The awards, hosted by the Home Office, highlight the vital role volunteers, including the Special Constabulary and cadets, play in support of policing.
Chief Constable Gareth Wilson said: “These awards are a perfect way to celebrate the outstanding contribution that volunteers make to policing in our county. They volunteer with such energy, commitment and professionalism. Our volunteers are local people who give up their time to make Suffolk’s communities better and safer. They do tremendous work from which the whole county benefits and I warmly welcome this opportunity to award individuals for their outstanding public service.”
Tim Passmore, Suffolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “The contribution that volunteers make to policing in Suffolk is absolutely remarkable. Volunteers play an important part in our policing family and we are indebted to them for their unstinting commitment and enthusiasm.
“I personally think that every single one of them deserves a prize and I hope that nominations will pour in. It would be great to see a Suffolk volunteer nominated for this prestigious national award.”
Nominations will close on July 4. For more details email Karen.firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01473 613570.
