DPFCC celebrates police officers and staff
Celebrating the hard work and dedication of police officers and staff was once again high on the agenda this week with Deputy, Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Jane Gardner attending a number of events being held by Essex Police.
On Thursday 6th October, Jane attended the Serious Crime Directorate Awards Ceremony in Kent. The Serious Crime Directorate is a collaboration between Kent and Essex Police that tackles serious criminality on a local, national and international scale and the awards are the culmination of the hard work, tenacity and dedication of officers and staff in solving some of the most serious crimes and bringing perpetrators to justice.
Jane heard first-hand about the complex work that goes into investigating serious crimes and the team of officers and staff whose diligence and tenacity help solve these difficult cases.
Jane said: “It is a real team effort as from delivering administrative support, to going out into the community, to providing specialist skills, their outstanding contributions helps to keep us all safer. Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, Roger Hirst is committed to providing Essex Police with the increased resilience it needs to continue to tackle these high-risk crimes that cause such harm in our communities.”
As part of this increased resilience, Jane Gardner attended an Essex Police Confirmation Ceremony on Monday 3rd October. The event, held at Braxted Park, Chelmsford, was in recognition of officers completing their two year’s probationary period. They were joined in celebrating this important milestone by friends, family, senior officers and Lord Lieutenant of Essex, Jennifer Tolhurst.
Jane said: “‘Congratulations to everyone who received their certificates on Monday. They are a credit to the police service, their families and to the public and I wish them all the best of luck as they continue their careers with Essex Police.”
Jane also attended a Chief Constable Commendation Ceremony on Friday 30th September that recognised police officers and a member of the armed forces for outstanding acts of quick thinking, courage, and tenacity. Among those receiving recognition were officers who rescued a woman from the sea in Clacton at night, a member of the armed service who attended to multiple people injured in a road traffic incident and an officer whose commitment and determination led to a dangerous predator being put behind bars.
