Policing heroes from across the Avon and Somerset area will be recognised at an awards ceremony this June, as this year’s Be Proud Awards finalists have now been chosen.
A final judging panel, including Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens, Chief Constable Andy Marsh and representatives from award sponsors BT, Capita and SEA, had the difficult decision of selecting this year’s finalists from the shortlisted nominations.
The unsung heroes, including police officers, members of staff, specials, volunteers and teams will be invited to a ceremony at Cadbury House in Congresbury on 12th June, where the overall force winner for each category will be announced.
PCC Sue Mountstevens said: “I want to congratulate everyone who was nominated, all those who were shortlisted and all the finalists. The awards are about celebrating those unsung heroes who go above and beyond in policing.
“I look forward to celebrating your achievements at the awards ceremony and seeing the reactions of our overall force winners on the night.”
Chief Constable Andy Marsh added: “It has been very humbling to read about the bravery and hard work of so many of our officers, staff and volunteers who ensure the communities of Avon and Somerset are safe.
“The examples of professionalism, dedication and commitment to the communities that I have read are truly inspiring. I’m looking forward to celebrating the success of the extraordinary individuals and teams who are part of Avon and Somerset Police.”
