It was a great pleasure to be present at the West Midlands Police Diamond Awards 2017/18, held on Thursday 22 March at the British Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham.
This was the sixth annual awards ceremony, recognising officers, staff and the public who have acted above and beyond the call of duty. Individuals and teams who have made a significant contribution to making the West Midlands a safer place to live, work and visit are nominated for one of 10 awards. The Diamond Awards allows officers, staff, partners and the community the opportunity to recognise and reward West Midlands police personnel who deliver a service that friends and family would be proud of.
PCU sponsored the Team of the Year award. This award is given to the team or department who have worked together to demonstrate the power and effectiveness of excellent teamwork while exemplifying the force values. There were 4 nominations for the award and the winners were a response unit from Sutton Coldfield who fully deserved the award. Congratulations!
