Proud of our people nominations - Week to Friday 16 September 2016

Each week we will publish details of those colleagues nominated for their excellent work and dedication to the communities of Staffordshire.

A credit to themselves, their officers and the force

I visited the Statfold Barn railway today (10/09/16) and was very impressed with the Police Cadets there. Despite the miserable weather the young Cadetspeople were very well turned out, exceedingly polite and helpful, and seemed a cheery bunch of lads and lasses!
They are a credit to themselves, their officers and instructors and the force!
Unfortunately, I missed the chance to pass this on verbally to the lady who seemed in charge of them, and I would like you please to make sure that the adult staff, and more especially the cadets themselves get to hear my comments!

My sons were both St Johns Cadets, and I know how much it always meant to them to be told what a good job they had done!


Grateful for professionalism and compassion

This incident was a distraction robbery taking place within sheltered accommodation in Lichfield. My 86-year-old mother-in-law and 90-year-old father-in-law were victims of a non-violent incident where cash and cards were stolen inside their home.

Your officers were all brilliant with my parents-in-law during a time they were understandably very upset. PC Rachel Jordan was kind to my mother-in-law, reassuring her and comforting her whilst she was distressed and crying in the immediate aftermath. The scene of crimes officer, Jo Chalmers, was very nice, explaining what she was doing all the time and took the time and care to clean up after herself.
 
PC Mark Booth was particularly patient with my mother-in-law and the way he dealt with the event was brilliant. I would like you to let Mark know that we are really grateful for the professional and compassionate way in which he handled the elderly people whilst they were visibly shocked and distressed and that now that they have had some sleep and the time to reflect on the incident they are so pleased that they had Mark attend the incident. 
 
Please let Mark know that we are grateful for the way in which he dealt with the matter.
 
Thank you.


Invaluable empathy, care and support

I wanted to mention PC Danielle Brannan, PC Claire Howard and PC Stephen Whitworth who attended two incidents on 15th September. Their empathy, care and support was invaluable. PC Stephen Whitworth was able to provide me with a phone number which I urgently needed.
 
However, my main compliment is for PC Danielle Brannan. She was attentive and supportive and definitely went that extra mile. As a family we had not experienced mental health issues before and with this being the second incident within a small time frame my family and I were exhausted, frustrated and scared and Danielle sat with my mum for several hours talking to her and keeping her calm. Her communication skills were excellent and without her I am not sure we would have been able to get my mum into the ambulance and to the hospital. My family and I Police car bluecannot thank her enough and we would definitely recommend her for a proud of our people award.


Thank you for the positive experience

Hi, we were at the Midland Game Fair today with our 3-year-old son. He loves seeing police cars but has never had any interaction with an officer. While we were there today we stopped so he could look at the cars and vans you had there.

Four of your officers took the time to talk to him and one of your officers, PC Joanne Wright, let him have a photo in a hat and gave him some other bits to hold to have his photo taken.

We didn't get their numbers but we would just to say thank you for giving him such a positive experience of meeting the police. He had such a big smile on his face it was lovely.
 
Thanks again.
