POLICE officers in South Derbyshire could be in with a chance of winning the Chief Constable’s Cup.
Derbyshire’s Chief Constable, Mick Creedon, is asking anyone who has had dealings with the police during the past 12 months to nominate their favourite officer by writing to him.
Mr Creedon is also looking for nominations for the best Safer Neighbourhood team in the county and the best Police Community Support Officer.
The county’s most popular bobby has been chosen annually since 1986 when the then Chief Constable, Alan Smith, provided a large silver cup to be awarded each year to the winner.
The contest is open to anyone serving in the force, including officers working on community beats, with young people, traffic, general patrol, CID or in any other department. Any police officer is eligible for nomination
This year nominations for the awards can be submitted via the force website www.derbyshire.police.uk or sent by post to the Chief Constable at Police Headquarters, Butterley Hall, Ripley, DE5 3RS by Monday, April 7.
