BRAVERY AWARDS


POLICE BRAVERY AWARDS


TRUE BRAVERY AND HEROISM


Presenting our third and final round-up of nominees for the 2020 Police Bravery Awards sponsored by Police Mutual. All the nominees listed here, and in our earlier editions, are due to attend a ceremony on 15 July 2021 where the overall winners will be announced. We thank and congratulate these officers for their outstanding acts of bravery.


STAFFORDSHIRE


PC Kristian Avons and Sergeant Amos Durose prevented a man armed with a knife from killing his partner in a horrific domestic incident. They only escaped severe injury themselves thanks to their stab vests. The officers had forced their way into a property after hearing a woman cry out in pain. They found the man holding a knife to the woman’s throat and using her as a human shield. PS Durose received knife blows to his neck and stab vest while wrestling the offender who was eventually subdued by a baton strike from PC Avons. Staffordshire Police Federation Chair Phil Jones said the officers had saved the woman’s life at considerable risk to their own safety.

PCs Jordan Tuck and Peter French stopped a man with a shotgun killing children in a terrifying domestic incident. They were deployed to a house which ‘looked as it if it had been struck by a hurricane’, with ornaments and glass strewn over the floors of every room. The officers evacuated three children and an adult as the suspect doused a shed in petrol and set light to it.

As they waited for armed back-up, the man dropped the weapon and appeared less agitated. It gave the officers the opportunity to get him and the gun under their control. Suffolk Police Federation Chair Darren Harris said fear had not prevented the officers saving the lives of everyone in the house.


SURREY


PC Stevie Spurgeon rescued a partially sighted woman who fell onto London Underground tracks. The woman was hurt and unable to get back onto the platform. With the trains still running, PC Spurgeon leapt to her aid and, with the help of a member of the public, pulled her to safety. Even though the emergency safety button had been pressed, a train could have still entered the station putting their lives in danger. Surrey Police Federation Chair Mel Warnes said the incident demonstrated “how police officers are much more than crime fighters”.
