Cambridgeshire Police Federation chair Liz Groom has praised the contribution volunteers make to policing as she encouraged nominations for this year’s Lord Ferrers Awards. 

The awards celebrate the achievements of volunteers in policing, including Special Constables. 

Liz said: “Volunteers play a vital role in keeping our communities safe and we were delighted to be able to welcome Specials into the Federation last year. 

“They bring a range of skills and expertise from outside policing and really strengthen the Force. 

“The Lord Ferrers Awards celebrate their dedication, sacrifice and professionalism and I’d like to encourage members to nominate their colleagues who have made an outstanding contribution.” 

There are individual and team awards across 12 categories. Nominations are now open and close at midnight on Wednesday 12 July.
