HRH The Countess of Wessex to attend Police Bravery Awards

  • Posted On 13 Jul 2017

    HRH The Countess of Wessex will be among those honouring the 70 police officers nominated for this year’s Police Bravery Awards.

     

    The West Midlands nominees for the awards are PCs Ryan Patel and James Neilson who confronted and chased armed robbers.

     

    Eight regional winners will be named with one of those being selected as the overall winner for 2017.

     

    Steve White, chair of the Police Federation of England and Wales, said:  “Every day officers selflessly put themselves in harm’s way to protect others and it is right that they are duly recognised for their bravery, courage and dedication to duty. 

     

    “This year perhaps more than most, the public realise the threats we face every day, and the heroic efforts of our officers, most of which goes unnoticed and unreported.

     

    “I am delighted that Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex is able to share in our celebrations.  It is fitting that a member of the Royal Family will be with us to congratulate this year’s nominees and support the wider police family in their unfailing duty to keep the Queen’s peace.”


    Other guests at the awards will include senior figures in policing and the Government.
