Gwent Police Force Awards 2021

I was delighted to support Gwent Police’s annual Force Awards this week.

The awards recognise those police officers and staff who have gone above and beyond what is required of them in the line of duty.

I was pleased to sponsor the Partnership Award, which this year went to the Safer Streets Working Group.

Working together with local authority and third sector partners, the team has secured more than £700,000 of funding to provide initiatives to reduce neighbourhood crime in Newport and Rhymney.

This last year has been incredibly tough, and all officers and staff have worked diligently to ensure that the people of Gwent receive an efficient and effective service from their police force.

On behalf of the residents of Gwent I want to pay tribute to all police officers and staff for everything they have done throughout the pandemic to keep our communities safe.
