The excellent work of police officers, staff and members of the public from Bradford District over the last year have been celebrated at a special ceremony.
The Bradford District Policing Awards, which took place at the National Media Museum in the city today (Thursday), saw more than 80 people recognised for their efforts in preventing and detecting crime and protecting vulnerable members of the public.
Bradford District Commander Chief Superintendent Scott Bisset hosted the event, which was also attended by senior leaders from West Yorkshire Police’s Chief Officer Team and partners.
Among the members of the public honoured for their bravery were Darryl Smith and Jacquie Smith, who detained a man after a car was broken into, and Naz Rashid, who helped to protect two females after they were attacked in their home.
Also recognised was Lee Northin, who chased after and detained a suspect following a robbery at a cashpoint, and Sharon Asquith, who helped police to detain three suspects for burglary.
Among the officers and staff receiving bravery awards were PCSOs Adam Lee and Attique Amin, who were recognised for their assistance in protecting officers while they were arresting a violent male.
Sergeant Noel Whitaker and PCs Michael Daisey and Dave Mitchell were praised for their efforts when they were deployed to an incident in Bradford City centre, where a man was threatening to harm himself and others with a broken bottle.
