PCSO Liz receives award

PCSO Liz receives award
PCSO Liz Whitehall receives her award from Insp Dave Meredith.

A NEWQUAY PCSO has been awarded for her innovative work within the local community.

Liz Whitehall, who covers the town centre and Pentire areas, was nominated for a Margaret Damer Dawson (MDD) award for her work in the community. At an awards ceremony last week, Liz received the MDD Focus Award for Service in Community Engagement.

Insp Dave Meredith said: “Liz is exceptionally community focused and her work with all elements of the town’s diverse community has made a real difference to the town centre. She is dedicated to the welfare and support of vulnerable persons and has been involved in the running of Newquay Homeless Action Group, Newquay Soup Kitchen, Newquay Woman’s Group and Newquay Disability Group.

“Liz is also committed to supporting the policing of the town’s evening and night-time economy and is robust and confident in dealing with alcohol-related disorder in the town centre and regularly confiscates alcohol from street drinkers.”

Liz regularly supports patrol officers in dealing with alcohol-related crime and disorder issues.
Inspector Meredith added: “Liz is passionate and committed to her role. She has earned a great deal of credibility and respect from both fellow officers and the  wider community in Newquay. There are few residents or businesses in her beat area that do not know and respect ‘PCSO Liz’. I am delighted that Liz’s work in the community has been recognised with this award, and am very proud to have such a capable and professional officer here at Newquay.”
