Dursley Specials Nominated for Prestigious Award

Posted: 25/03/2008 12:46:59

Dursley Special Constables have been nominated by the public and local town council to receive a prestigious award for services to the community.

They will learn whether they have won the Leslie D. Gale Award at a ceremony taking place in the Town Hall, Market Place, Dursley tonight (Tuesday March 25th) from 7:00pm, during the council’s Annual Meeting. It is the first time the Specials have been shortlisted and as such represents a major achievement for them.

Assistant Divisional Officer Steve Lindsay said: “This is great news for the Specials team, and also for the rest of the Dursley Safer Community Team, as we all work together to improve neighbourhood relations and help address the issues that matter to residents.”

Superintendent Jerry Foster-Turner added: “This just goes to show Neighbourhood Policing is working, as this is the first time we have been put forward for this type of award, and it would be an honour to win it.”

The Special Constables work closely with the rest of the Dursley Safer Community Team, local agencies and the community to introduce new ways of tackling crime and anti-social behaviour in the area.

Special Constables are unpaid but dedicated volunteers who have the same powers as police officers but can choose their hours to suit family and work commitments.
