Winners of police volunteer awards 2017

We are proud to announce the winners of the ‘Police volunteer awards’ which we presented at a special ceremony on Tuesday 4th July.

Devon & Cornwall Police has over 560 special constables, nearly 600 police volunteers and 300 police cadets, all giving their services in their own time. In addition, there are willing helpers in the communities who operate local schemes such as community Speed watch and neighbourhood watch.

The force aims to increase opportunities for volunteers so they can get involved in supporting their local neighbourhoods, whether via partner volunteering groups or by developing their own volunteering programmes.

Acting Chief Constable Paul Netherton said “I wish to thank all volunteers for all that they have so generously given and for all that they are able to give into the future. It is an absolute honour to work alongside them and to recognise their achievements.”
