NEIGHBOURHOOD Watch co-ordinators in Solihull have been recognised and rewarded by the police for their long-standing commitment to supporting the scheme.
As part of National Neighbourhood Watch Week, West Midlands Police in Solihull decided to say thank you to local residents who have been Neighbourhood Watch coordinators for 15 years or more.
The coordinators were invited to Solihull Police Station, where they were each presented with a certificate from Chief Superintendent Carl Foulkes.
Afterwards they enjoyed a light buffet and refreshments whilst having the opportunity to chat with other co-ordinators, the community partnership officer and inspectors.
Chief Supt Carl Foulkes said: “We organised the Reward and Recognition event as an opportunity to say thank you for all the hard work, commitment and loyalty that these long-standing coordinators have given to Neighbourhood Watch.
“We have 36 coordinators who have each given at least 15 years of their time to the scheme, which is an outstanding contribution and supports us in helping to reduce crime and make the borough a safer place to live in.”
The police are always looking for new people to join the Neighbourhood Watch scheme, so if you are interested then please contact Celia Davies, community partnership officer, to find out more.
