Celebrating Achievement 2020 - How We Surprised Our Derbyshire Constabulary Heroes

Alert message sent 18/12/2020 13:35:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

Police officers, staff and volunteers have been surprised with awards this month as the force recognised outstanding work and dedication across the county.

The force typically holds ceremonies whereby nominees are invited to attend with their families to find out who has won and to receive their certificates or trophies.

We cancelled the 2020 ceremonies due to coronavirus but this month, we were able to present awards in a COVID-secure way, either virtually or by a senior officer surprising the winner at their place of work.

Masks and social distancing didn’t dampen the mood and as you can see by our video, each winner was happy to discover they had won.

Chief Constable Rachel Swann said: “Recognising the hard work and dedication of our staff is so important but this year, we needed to think of a new way to present our winners with their awards.

“I’m pleased to say that we managed to surprise recipients by telling them they had won during a virtual meeting, or delivering their awards to them at their police station or while on patrol.

“I am proud of all our award winners and nominees, who continue to go the extra mile for our communities during what has been a particularly challenging year for everyone.”
