Police Authority Chairman, David Lloyd, said: “These awards are our opportunity to recognise the officers, staff and members of the public who make a real difference to the lives of those residing and working in Hertfordshire. 


“It is one of the few occasions when I have the opportunity to say a public ‘thank you’ not only for the tremendous unpaid contributions that are made by our local residents but also to our Neighbourhood officers and staff who go beyond the ‘day job’ to really make a difference to the safety and feelings of reassurance of the communities they serve.


“The commitment and dedication of all our officers and staff never ceases to amaze me and makes Hertfordshire what it is – one of the safest places in the country in which to live and work.”
