POLICE officers and partners in Doncaster have been recognised at South Yorkshire Police’s Leaders in Action awards ceremony.
Out of the 11 awards, Doncaster officers and staff scooped six of them with Insp Paul Sellars presented with the Lifetime Achievement in Policing Award after 30 years in the force, six of which were spent in Doncaster.
Doncaster also scooped first place in the Partnership Award, with the project Neighbourhood Alliance, being presented by Civic Mayor Eva Hughes.
Neighbourhood Alliance has now been running for two years and has visited 16 areas across Doncaster to reduce antisocial behaviour and improving community facilities.
Acting Insp Wayne Goodwin, who manages it, said he was ‘absolutely thrilled’ and the award was ‘a testament to the hard work carried out by all the agencies involved’.
The awards were hosted by BBC presenters Harry Gration and Christa Ackroyd.
