It gives us great pleasure to congratulate ED King on being awarded the Joanne Graham Award.
The award was set up in the memory of Joanne Graham who was one of the first Police Community Support Officers in Warwick District and during her time in this role she had a positive impact on the community in which she worked and on her colleagues in Warwickshire Police and other partner agencies.
Sadly, Joanne passed away in December 2012 after a short illness and in recognition of the example she set an award may be given annually in her name.
The award may be given to a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) serving in this district who has made a significant contribution to improving the quality of life for the community in which they work. The nomination process is coordinated annually by Julian Hill, our Anti-Social Behaviour Officer and scored independently by four people. Due to the high standards that Joanne set there is a minimum score but, in this case, that level was easily exceeded and for only the second time since its inception in 2013 the Joanne Graham Award is made to PCSO Edward King.
Both Cllr Pam Radford and Cllr Trevor Wright know Ed well and as a local lad to Cubbington he has always put the community first often leading various initiatives to minimise crime whilst at the same time supporting prevention and community engagement and we are absolutely delighted that his dedication has not gone unrecognised.
Thank you, Ed, on behalf of the whole community in which you serve
