A ROCHFORD police community support officer has been awarded for bringing almost 50 offenders to prison.
PCSO Andrew Hill received the Rural PCSO of the Year accolade from Chief Constable Jim Barker-McCardle at the annual Essex Police Awards, held to acknowledge exceptional performance from officers.

HERO: PCSO Andrew Hill (ESSEX)
The 29-year-old, who has worked for the Force since 2004, has been directly responsible for 45 offenders being arrested and brought to justice in the last year alone.
Andrew said: “I am proud to have won the award.
“I feel it is recognition of all the hard work put in by the neighbourhood policing teams and our partner agencies across the district to make Rochford one of the safest parts of the county.”
The PCSO of the Year Award is the second award Andrew has won after he was named winner in 2007.
Inspector Andy Clarkson, who nominated Andrew for the award, praised him for his consistent hard work and dedication.
He said: “Andy has focussed on the priorities for his neighbourhood and the problems affecting it. Having identified the issues he has taken positive action to resolve them, working with residents and partners.
“An example of this is his success in combating graffiti by identifying offenders.”
In November 2007, PCSO Hill helped rescue two men who were trapped in rising waters on Wallasea Island.
He dragged the men, aged 24 and 44, to safety after their Audi got stuck in a flooded road.

CUMBRIA’S chief constable has praised a Whitehaven police community support officer who was named best in Britain at a ceremony this week.


Jonathan Mann landed the award after working “tirelessly with organisations for the good of the community”, said event organisers.

He has set up activities for children in west Cumbria, including a rugby training day, a fishing scheme and football events.

His work has also aimed to cut complaints about antisocial trouble in Whitehaven.

Jonathan received his award on Thursday night at the annual Jane’s Police Review Gala Awards.

Chief Constable Craig Mackey said: “Jonathan has personified everything a police community support officer should be. He has established himself as an integral part of the community to solve local issues and work with the local community to make initiatives successful.

“His open and friendly manner has made him hugely popular and he has raised local confidence by providing a visible and reassuring presence.”

Chief Superintendent Steve Johnson said: “I am proud that Jonathan has been recognised nationally for all of the hard work he has put into the local community. His junior PCSO scheme was a great success.

“He is an enthusiastic and committed individual who seeks out innovative approaches to resolving the issues within his community.”

At the Chief Constable’s Awards Ceremony next week Jonathan will receive the local award of Police Community Officer of the Year, in addition to the national award. ... rPath=news
