HARLOW residents have until Friday to nominate their local Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator for the 2013 Neighbourhood Watch Awards.
Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh of Essex Police and Nick Alston, Essex Police and Crime Commissioner are supporting the Essex Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator of the Year Award for 2013.
Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh said he was more than happy to give his backing to the awards,
“Policing in Essex is all about working with the people of the county to combat crime together”, he said. “Neighbourhood Watch is a great representation of that ethos in action and I think it’s right that we recognise the great work of the people involved.”
Nick Alston, Police and Crime Commissioner for Essex said,
“I’m a huge supporter of Neighbourhood Watch, which performs invaluable work in helping to keep our communities safe. With more than seven thousand volunteer co-ordinators, Neighbourhood Watch schemes provide support and reassurance to around one in three households in Essex; that’s nearly 250,000 homes.
Each of the Neighbourhood Watch districts is inviting the public and others involved in community safety to nominate co-ordinators who have demonstrated excellent service in their community.
Each district will judge the nominations and submit one candidate for the prestigious Essex Co-ordinator of the Year Award.
All the other candidates will receive a certificate of appreciation at a ceremony in March 2014.
To make a nomination, download and complete the nomination form from the Essex Police website.
Completed nomination forms should be sent to the relevant contact in the districts listed in the document or handed in at your local police station by no later than 5pm on Friday January 10, 2014.
