CHIEF Constables commend police officers and staff for their bravery and tenacity and for their commitment to keeping the people of Essex safe.

Eight police officers and two members of police staff have been commended by Essex Police Chief Constable Ben-Julian Harrington for their bravery, tenacity and commitment to protecting the people of Essex and keeping them safe, helping their colleagues and catching criminals.

Two officers have also been commended by the National Police Chiefs’ Council Cybercrime Lead Chief Constable Peter Goodman, for going above and beyond in the field of cybercrime investigations and training.

A commendation is one of the highest honours a Chief Constable can give.

Among those commended by Mr Harrington are PC David Moon and PC Richard Hamilton, from our Force Support Unit. They were called in to search the area following an armed robbery in Harlow in June 2019. They found the suspect nearby.

The man, who had a large knife tucked in his waistband, became violent when PC Moon tried to arrest him but PC Hamilton used his Taser to subdue him and prevent PC Moon from being seriously injured. The man was arrested without injury and charged with various offences. Both officers have been commended for their bravery, professionalism and tenacity.
