Police Officers receive @ClevelandPolice Commedations

Published

on

Officers and staff at Cleveland Police have received awards in a commendation ceremony held at
the Force’s Headquarters on Thursday 28th November.

32 officers and civilian staff were commended by Chief Constable Jacqui Cheer and High Sheriff of
Durham, Peter Bell, for a range of achievements including outstanding courage, professionalism,
bravery and dedication to their work. Eight members of staff were also awarded certificates for
twenty years of service at the Force.

A Chief Constable’s Commendation was awarded to two officers whose actions undoubtedly saved
the life of an elderly man who was found lifeless in his home after it was reported that he hadn’t been
seen for an unusual amount of time. PC John Blench and PC Steven Bolsover administered CPR
and assisted paramedics before the man was transported to James Cook University Hospital where
he remained in a coma. He has since made a full recovery.

An Assistant Chief Constable’s Commendation was awarded to an officer who displayed great
bravery in a dangerous chase involving a JCB. The officer responded to a report of a JCB which
smashed through a fence and was travelling in the direction of the A174. The driver of the vehicle
refused to stop and turned into a farmer’s field, travelling at slow speed due to thick, heavy mud. The
officer then left his police vehicle, gave chase and ran alongside the JCB. He opened the cab door
and took hold of the driver and pulled him from the vehicle, despite the potential for serious injury to
himself, therefore preventing injury to members of the public and also the recovery of a high value
JCB.

One man was presented with a Brave Citizens Award following an incident in which the man, along
with another man, protected two young girls from a vicious Bullmastiff that had already attacked a
young boy. The incident which took place on 3rd November 2012, saw the men use a bicycle to fend
off the dog, after it had already dragged an 11-year-old from his pedal bike. The girls needed
hospital treatment for their injuries, but without the brave intervention of the men their injuries would
have been far worse.
Chief Constable Jacqui Cheer said: “We hold these ceremonies so that we can recognise the brave

officers, staff and public within Cleveland. It is important to us to say thank you to our officers and
staff who have displayed the utmost dedication to their profession, as well as their families.

“It is particularly poignant to show our appreciation to those members of the public who have shown
great bravery, selflessness and disregard for their own safety, especially as they have often had no
training or prior experience of being in a potentially dangerous situation.

“The evening was thoroughly enjoyable and I hope that all who received awards are very proud of
themselves.”

Published

on

Police in Hartlepool came across an unusual incident while on a routine patrol of the town centre.

The Hartlepool Neighbourhood Police team managed to stop a stolen mobility scooter, now we aren’t too sure if a pursuit was given but if there was we are sure the footage would be unreal.

And we are fairly sure those cops responding to the incident won’t hear the end of this one back in the parade room for the next couple of years.

Anyways getting back to the story because this is, after all, a very serious incident, officers have described it as ‘one of the strangest jobs they’ve dealt with’.

Not only had the woman stole the mobility scooter she could not even drive it. Police Say she was spotted driving the Scooter in a reckless manner while under the influence of alcohol.

Cops managed to get their hands on her and lock her up but now they have the job of finding out whos scooter it is.

The cops admitted this was Perhaps one of the strangest jobs officers have dealt with in recent times.
