Ferrers Awards

Home Secretary Priti Patel, who presented awards said:

‘It is heartening to see these volunteers joining our brave police officers working tirelessly to cut crime and protect the public during an unprecedented time. Their selfless work putting the most vulnerable people in their neighborhoods first and caring for their communities represents the very best in the British public. I want to congratulate each and every one of the winners – they are a vital part of the policing family.’

Policing Minister Kit Malthouse, also in attendance said,

‘Volunteers are treasured members of the policing family and I have nothing but the highest regard for people who give up their free time to help keep their neighbours safe. During a very tough year for everyone, this year’s winners are people who have helped engage young people on domestic abuse, supported vulnerable people in their communities and encouraged their police forces to become more diverse. I would like to thank each and every one and encourage them to continue to play that vital role in society.’
