Do you know someone within your community that has gone above and beyond?

Devon & Cornwall Police Community Volunteer Awards are looking for nominations for various awards in a number of categories.

Perhaps you know someone in your community who regularly gives up their time in a voluntary capacity and who has made a significant impact deserving of recognition, or know someone who works towards the improvement of the safety, health and wellbeing of their local community?

Devon and Cornwall Police and the Police and Crime Commissioner, in partnership with Devon & Cornwall Community Watch Association (DaCCWA) and Crimestoppers, are delighted to be hosting the 3rd Devon & Cornwall Police Community Awards on Tuesday 4th July 2017 to recognising the significant contribution volunteers play within our communities.

We will also be recognising the fantastic work of all of the supportive staff and partner agencies that help to organise and look after the volunteers.

Alison Hernandez, Police and Crime Commissioner for Devon & Cornwall said: “'I am committed to championing volunteering in policing to bring the public closer to the police, and increase community capacity and resilience.

“We need to maximise the use of volunteers’ skills, energy and commitment and integrate them into the extended police family. This is key to better connecting communities and policing”.

Shaun Sawyer, Chief Constable for Devon and Cornwall Police, said: “‘It is a pleasure to champion and recognise volunteering in policing, which brings not only operational benefits but also the public and police closer together.

“Connecting and enhancing community capacity, resilience and confidence is integral to keeping the public safe. This is a celebration of how our volunteers’ and partners’ skills, energy and commitment benefits society and forms part of our wider police family”.
