The hard work and commitment of one of Harlow Council’s Community Safety Officers has been recognised at a national awards ceremony.
Faith Watson was runner-up in the Police Support Volunteer category at the Home Office Lord Ferrers Award held last Tuesday (28 November 2017).
The Lord Ferrers Awards recognise the contribution police volunteers make to policing. Faith had been shortlisted for an individual award and attended a special awards event hosted at Millbank Tower in London.
This year there were 600 nominations for the awards which is twice as many as last year.
Nine winners were announced at the ceremony which was attended by the Home Secretary Amber Rudd and Minister of State for Policing and the Service, Nick Hurd.
As part of Faith’s role she is a Hate Crime Ambassador and she was nominated for her contribution and commitment to the Harlow Incident Reporting Centres project.
