Neighbourhood Policing Awards 2015 The next PCC election is due to take place on 5 May 2016. PCCs are elected by the public for a period of four years, to oversee how crime is tackled in your police force area ensuring the policing needs of your community are met as effectively as possible.

Dedicated officers, police staff and volunteers who serve their communities and go that extra mile beyond the call of duty were celebrated at Neighbourhood Policing Awards 2015. The awards, jointly hosted by PCC Sue Mountstevens and Avon and Somerset Constabulary, are to reward members of the police family for their hard work in ensuring the communities of Avon and Somerset are safe and feel safe. Sue said: “These awards give us the opportunity to celebrate some of the most inspirational, selfless and dedicated people working in our communities. It’s particularly special for me because the nominations come from members of the public – residents who have taken the time to write in with compliments about the fantastic work of all our winners.” Temporary Chief Constable Gareth Morgan said: “I have read all the nominations and it’s a humbling experience to see what members of the public say. This is an occasion to remind ourselves of the great work done by men and women every day. It’s important we recognise it and be proud of what we do for the public.” Local people are invited to submit nominations across eight categories before winners are chosen for each policing area; Bristol, the North East (covering South Gloucestershire and Bath and North East Somerset) and Somerset.

All the winners were invited to the ceremony to be presented with their certificates and hear the announcement of the overall winner in each category.
