Diversity Trophy

A ceremony to honour the efforts of officers, staff and volunteers took place last night and saw 15 awards presented by Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh.
Almost 200 people attended the ceremony held at the Chelmsford City Racecourse. Nominees and their guests enjoyed the yearly event where trophies for bravery, dedication and charitable efforts are presented.
Officers, staff and teams had to meet certain criteria to win an award, which included:

• Delivering strong local policing, working to earn the trust of the public
• Delivering better value for money, efficiency and productivity
• Reducing the risk of harm to our communities
• Developing and valuing police officers and staff and enhancing professionalism.

Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh, said: “I’m really proud to be able to formally recognise the efforts of officers, staff and volunteers who have been nominated for these awards because of some of the outstanding things they have done while serving the public of Essex.

“Every day I hear stories about acts of bravery, amazing dedication and occasions when someone has gone above and beyond to help a vulnerable person and keep them safe.
“I am privileged to lead such a great group of men and women who together work tirelessly to make this county safe. The ceremony is held to recognise a small number of them who have been nominated by their colleagues and say thank you for their service.”

Roger Hirst, Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex, said: “It was a great honour to attend the Essex Police Awards Ceremony. Every day Essex Police officers, staff and volunteers do amazing things to protect their communities. It is great to see the efforts of some of those people recognised tonight.”

The winners were:

PCSO of the Year

Presented to PCSO Tony Gibson. Tony has been a police community support officer in Harlow for many years and has consistently shown exceptional professionalism and commitment to his role.

He always puts himself forward to support colleagues and has shown amazing courage on numerous occasions when apprehending suspects.
Tony’s work across the community helps to keep Essex safe on many counts, not least in his intelligence-gathering around local gangs, which has attracted praise from various quarters.

On top of this, Tony also took on the lead for Active Citizens, increasing their number and keeping them engaged with us. Tony is very well regarded by officers and staff alike.


DCI Danny Stoten

Danny is a senior investigating officer with Harlow Major Investigation Team. As well as dealing with serious crime investigations, Danny balances his remaining time between his family and running a charity-focused boxing and fitness centre in Chelmsford.

Over the last six years has raised a huge amount of money to provide care and treatment for disabled children in Essex who don’t get support from the NHS. The thousands of pounds he has raised for each affected child has phenomenally changed their lives.

Danny’s motivation for this selfless work is simply that he wholeheartedly believes these children need an extra hand in life.

And his fundraising doesn’t stop there – he has also raised money for cancer research in memory of Pc Jenna Barber, Help for Heroes and Barnardo’s. He is a very modest but extremely deserving recipient of this award.
