Proud of our people nominations - Week to Friday 14 October 2016

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

Excellent Experience

I would like to say a huge thank you to PC Emma Cotter, who came from Burton police station on Friday 4 October for an arranged meeting regarding an incident on 2 October at our flats. Please would you thank her for me, she reassured me, she was kind, thoughtful and professional. Our meeting was at Uttoxeter Police Station. My experience with PCSO Sean Elliott at Uttoxeter is excellent too. Please pass on my thanks to them, PC Emma Cotter from Burton was excellent. Thank you Staffordshire Police.


Commitment and excellent work

I am writing to comment on Special Police Sergeant Matthew Hickinbottom and his excellent work, motivation and support that he provides at Wombourne.

special constable blueWe are constantly pulled from pillar to post, as you well know, and when Matt is on he provides a real boost to not just our numbers but to the level of experience on the street.  He regularly takes out new Special Constables, yes this is his role, but the manner he does this in, and the total support he offers them, is very very clear. 

In the last two weeks alone, I am aware of three no insurance seizures he has completed, all from proactive stops, not ANPR.  I am also aware of two sets of stop and searches he has completed on cars full of nominals loitering near golf clubs.  Matt is always dashing about taking work off us and carrying out pro-active policing, which is critical down here to try and keep on top of the intelligence. In short, Matt is a credit to not only himself and South Staffs LPT, but to Staffordshire Police.

I strongly feel we don't praise enough and thank colleagues who give of their time for free and work so very hard.

Respectfully submitted for some sort of recognition of his commitment and excellent work.


Courteous and respectful nature

I would like to commend PC Dean Dobson on his work after being one of the first on the scene of my son's death earlier this year.  He has kept me informed of how this case is progressing and his courteous and respectful nature has been exemplary.  My son had a substantial amount of money stolen from his account at the time of and since his death. 

I hope you will pass on my gratitude to PC Dobson and to let him know that it has made a lot of difference to me knowing that he has been involved in this case.  It is heart-warming to know that this case has been followed up by your service.  This has made an enormous difference to how I have been able to deal with what has been a very traumatic time.  Many thanks for your all your work.
