We are looking for community heroes!
Roger Hirst, the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex wants to hear about your community heroes – people from across Essex who make an ‘Outstanding Contribution to Community Safety’.
Do you know somebody in your community, like last year's winners Crimewatch Wickford, who go the extra mile to support vulnerable people, prevent crime and make their communities safer? If so then why not nominate them for the award. The process is simple to complete, and winners will be recognised at the PFCC Annual Conference on Thursday, March 15th 2018 which is being held at Boreham House in Chelmsford.
