STAFFORDSHIRE police officers and PCSOs who tried to save the lives of two members of the public by giving them emergency first aid, have honoured at a special awards ceremony.
Ten police officers and staff were presented with Royal Humane Society Certificates by Chief Constable Gareth Morgan, alongside Lord Lieutenant, Ian Dudson, at a ceremony which recognises and celebrates the outstanding work at Staffordshire Police.
Five police officers and a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) will be recognised for their efforts after they tried to save the life of a man found in woodland. They performed CPR for 25 minutes before ambulance arrived.
In another incident, three police officers and a PCSO will be given awards after they gave emergency first aid for 30 minutes to a man found collapsed at the back of a bus. Tragically both people died despite the efforts of police and staff.
The event at the Council Chambers in Stafford also saw long-serving police officers, specials and staff recognised for their continued hard work and commitment.
Chief Constable Gareth Morgan, said:Recognising and celebrating the outstanding work of our officers and staff is something we pride ourselves on at Staffordshire Police.”
