Sheringham policeman honoured in Noscas awards.
A Sheringham-based policeman has won the accolade of community officer of the year at an annual Noscas ceremony.
PC Ian Smith was nominated for a Norfolk Safer Community Award for his straightforward honest style alongside a caring and understanding attitude as an office with the Sheringham Safer Neighbourhood Team.
Comments made about him include: 'Ian has won the respect and gratitude of the whole town for his police work.'
The awards at Dunston Hall, now in their fifth year and sponsored by the News' sister paper the EDP, highlight the work of officers, staff and members of the local community who have all given something back to the county and, in the process, have helped the constabulary improve its service.
Norfolk's chief constable, Phil Gormley, said they were about 'recognising some of the fantastic work that takes place in our communities across the county, particularly when the constabulary and local residents work side-by-side.'
