Filton’s Beat Team has been named as the best in the north east region of the Avon and Somerset policing area.

They were among dozens of men and women who serve their communities, going above and beyond the call of duty, who celebrated at the annual Neighbourhood Policing Awards at Cadbury House Hotel, Congresbury.

The awards are organised jointly by Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens and the Constabulary and reward dedicated officers, staff and volunteers for their hard work in ensuring the communities of Avon and Somerset be safe and feel safe.

The event was attended by more than 150 people including Lord Lieutenants, High Sheriffs and senior police officers.

Filton Inspector Bob Evely said: "We’re extremely grateful to all the people in Filton who took the time to put us forward for this award.

"We were delighted to be named the top team in the North East policing area, which includes the whole of South Gloucestershire and Bath and North East Somerset.

"We’ll carry on being as visible and accessible as we can to the community and working to keep the area safe from crime and disorder."

Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: "The awards are a tribute to the fantastic people we have here in Avon and Somerset and it was an absolute honour to be in a room with so many inspirational, selfless and dedicated individuals.

"I think it is important that we take the time to recognise the men and women that work so hard to keep us safe."

Chief Constable Nick Gargan said: "These awards celebrate what’s best about British policing."

The evening was compered by Deputy Editor of the Bristol Post Rob Stokes.  The overall winners of the beat Team award were the Neighbourhood Beat Team officers from Avonmouth and Shirehampton.
