Burnham-On-Sea policeman nominated as Special Constable of Year

A Burnham-On-Sea policeman has been nominated to become Avon and Somerset Constabulary's Special Constable of the Year.

Special Constable Ian Phillips has been put forward by residents as part of the annual Community Policing Awards, which seek to shine the spotlight on the best police on the beat.

The awards invite people to nominate police officers, staff and volunteers who they feel have gone the extra mile to reduce crime and improve the quality of life.

After careful deliberation, reviewing 672 public nominations, including an impressive 345 for Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs), Ian is among the 36 police to make the regional finals.

Ian will now have to wait until Thursday, March 8th to find out who the overall winners of each category are during a special awards ceremony to be held in Congresbury.

Dr Peter Heffer, Chair of Avon and Somerset Police Authority, said: "We are delighted that so many people have taken the time to nominate, it really does make the Community Policing Awards extra special to us and the winners."

"All of the district winners feel a great sense of pride in being nominated by the community. The anticipation continues until Thursday when we will announce the overall force winner for each of the six categories at a Gala Awards night, which is only possible thanks to the generous support of our sponsors."
