POLICE and civilians were recognised for their crime-fighting efforts in a ceremony to honour their successes.

The awards night saw 20 officers and police workers presented with trophies.

A bravery award went to PCs Paul Briggs and Clive Tyree for risking their own safety while successfully negotiating with a man threatening to harm himself.

The lifetime achievement award went to Insp Kate Wheatley, who has spent 27 years as frontline response officer - first as a constable, then as sergeant and now as inspector.

Chf Supt Simon Torr, Sheffield’s district commander, said: “The Sheffield police awards was an excellent evening and provided South Yorkshire Police with the opportunity to acknowledge the work, bravery, commitment and achievements of some remarkable police officers and police staff.”
