A former Sheffield police chief was honoured by the city’s Muslim community for his work to help foster good community relations.

Former Chief Superintendent Paul Broadbent was the guest of honour at a dinner held at the Arooj restaurant on Attercliffe Road.

Chief Supt Broadbent moved from the South Yorkshire force to a post in Nottinghamshire four years ago.

He has now retired but still lives in the Barnsley area.

The invitation to the dinner came from Dr Sawar Awan, aged 80, who has hosted a number of similar occasions for top officers over recent years.

“We like to thank those people who have helped our community, and who often have been able to help 24 hours a day,” he said.

“Paul was absolutely marvellous when he was with the force, always very helpful until he left Sheffield and he has always kept in touch with the community here. We enjoy maintaining these friendships.”
