West Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner wants your help nominating police volunteers for national awards (30 Jun 2016)

Mark Burns-Williamson, West Yorkshire's Police and Crime Commissioner is asking for your help in nominating police volunteers for the Lord Ferrers Awards.

The Lord Ferrers Awards, previously known as the Special Constable and Police Volunteer Awards, were first held in in 1993. They were created by a previous Home Office minister, Lord Ferrers, and were renamed in his memory when he passed away in 2012.

The awards highlight the vital role volunteers play in supporting and enhancing policing and through giving up their free time in making communities safer.  

This year the public have been asked for their help in nominating volunteers.

Mark Burns-Williamson said "Police volunteers do an amazing job. The fact they sacrifice time with loved ones and other commitments to find enough time to help their communities is something we can all admire.

"I would urge anyone who knows a police volunteer that goes above and beyond to nominate them for an award. The awards are split into categories and you can find out more by reading the Lord Ferrers Awards Nomination Guidance and Award Categories."

"Make nominations by visiting http://www.homeofficesurveys.homeoffice.gov.uk/s/TO6DL. The closing dates for nominations is on Sunday 17 July 2016."
