Proud of our people nominations - Week to Friday 3 February 2017

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

A credit to the Force

Hi,  I am the Line Manager for a member of staff who works in the Post Room at Weston Road HQ. It has been brought to my attention by reception and Kier staff, that on Thursday 26th January one of our Kier colleagues suffered a seizure at reception and was attended by a member of police staff, the only first aider in Block 7, until a paramedic arrived. She showed great compassion and assisted the paramedic until the man  was removed to hospital. I am also aware that his symptoms were difficult for her to deal with as they brought back memories closer to home.


Excellent partnership working Helpful white

Hello, I am from Stafford Youth Offending Service and I want to let you know about a very tricky issue regarding a young person being discharged from St George's.  She is an extremely vulnerable young person and on discharge she presented herself to Anson House.  She was making threats to kill herself and was clearly very troubled.  It is a long story but eventually she was returned to St George's.

I am bringing this to your attention to let you know that the way in which PC Julie Dixon and PC Steve Smith worked with the young person and worked with Youth Offending Service (YOS) staff was exemplary.  If it had not been for their input I fear that the outcome could have been very different. They were both extremely professional, practical and supportive.

PC Julie Dixon, in particular,  put herself out to attend the discharge meeting in Stafford earlier in the day and she made it her business to stay at the Stafford YOS office until the matter was resolved - which I have to say was not until about 8pm.  It was her ability to make a supportive relationship with the young person that was so beneficial.

This is what I call excellent partnership working.


Excellent inter-agency co-operation and caring service

I would like to thank the emergency services for their care at my road traffic collision on 26 January at 7.05 just outside Ellastone.
 
A car seemed to lose control and came smashing into my car at speed, ripping off the back passenger door skin and taking off the whole back wheel with its axle. I was stuck in the car.
 
Everyone who dealt with me was kind, caring and friendly and I felt safe in their hands. It was an excellent example of inter-agency co-operation and the whole event was seamless. I was informed at every stage what was happening and the Uttoxeter fire crew cut me out of the car with the minimum of fuss. The flying paramedic and the ambulance crew were thorough in ensuring that I was fit to go straight home. PC Samantha Humphreys was spot on in taking down the facts whilst making sure that I was warm enough.
 
Please pass on my thanks to them all.
