Last Friday we hosted a special event to celebrate the commitment and hard work of our wonderful Community Safety Volunteers who choose to give their free time to helping keep our communities safe.
The ceremony took place at the Village Hotel in Hessle with awards given to volunteers for a variety of different achievements including years of service, hours completed and work placement recognition.
Chief Constable Lee Freeman attended along with Chief Fire Officer Chris Blacksell to personally thank the volunteers for their dedication.
Speaking about Friday’s event, Chief Constable Lee Freeman said: “We have over a hundred volunteers who give back to their communities by volunteering with the police and the fire service.
“They help across almost all departments from the specials officers that police our streets to our community safety volunteers who offer support to staff and officers across the force.
“It was a great event on Friday and I thoroughly enjoyed being able to thank our volunteers and present them with their certificates.”
