Chard PCSO highly commended in awards
6:00pm Thursday 24th October 2013 in News
A MAN from Chard has been highly commended in the PCSO of the Year category of the Neighbourhood Policing Awards for Somerset.
Benjamin Jacob Samways received the accolade after shortlisted nominees were considered by a panel which include Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens, and Chief Constable Nick Gargan.
Mrs Mounstevens said: “Reading the nominations was a real joy as it’s clear what a difference you, as individuals and teams, make to the communities you serve.
“I want to congratulate all the winners and those who received a highly commended recognition.”
Ch Con Gargan said: “The standard of nominations this year made the judging process really tough.
“From reading the citations it’s clear the winners mean so much to their communities, and in addition to being a uniform presence on the street they’re very much part of the communities they serve.
“The fact that we received over 500 nominations from communities, residents and businesses across the force is a testament to the hard work and commitment shown by all the neighbourhood and response teams, specials and volunteers in Avon and Somerset.”
