GMP’s Citizens in Policing Awards 2017

We were proud to support GMP’s Citizens in Policing Awards again this year, held at the Hilton Hotel at Manchester Airport on Sunday 4th June. At this event people gathered to celebrate the amazing work that citizens do for policing, and gave thanks for the thousands of hours that the volunteers give each year to support Greater Manchester Police, and help to keep Greater Manchester safe.

We were given the honour of presenting the final award of the day, the Leadership Award. This award was “open to Police Support Volunteers, Special Constables, Volunteer Police Cadets or Volunteer Police Cadet Leaders that demonstrate a significant and sustained contribution to leadership. This individual will have inspired others, treated colleagues with respect and demonstrated innovation and creativity in problem solving.”

Our Marketing Officer, Jo McGrann, announced the winner and the runner up for this award and was able to present both with their certificate. The winner of the Leadership Award was Special Inspector Matthew Saville and the runner up was Special Sergeant Robert Mitchell.
