POLICE BRAVERY AWARDS SUSSEX PC David Icke


PCs Matthew Parnell and Sean Grainger stopped a knife- wielding man making good on his threat to cause a massacre at Gatwick Airport. They were the first on the scene after reports of a man making threats to kill while brandishing two kitchen knives. PC Grainger aimed his Taser at the suspect while PC Parnell pointed his G36 rifle at the man in a bid to defuse the situation. The man dropped the knives but continued to approach the officers. They used Taser to bring the threat under control. They “demonstrated exemplary policing and saved lives – including that of the suspect,” said Sussex Police Federation Chair Daren Egan.


WEST MERCIA PC Emily Chapman


PCs Lee Phillips and Christopher Donovan rescued a vulnerable man from a fast-flowing river in the middle of winter. They responded to a call about a man behaving inappropriately in Shrewsbury town centre. In his attempt to make off, he jumped over a fence down to the riverside. He entered the water and was soon struggling. The officers followed him into the river and pulled him to safety before administering first aid. “Without the bravery, commitment and diligence of PC Phillips and PC Donovan this man would likely have died,” said West Mercia Police Federation Chair Sarah Cooper.


WEST MIDLANDS PC Nazia Hussain THAMES VALLEY


PCs David Icke, Emily Chapman and Nazia Hussain saved the lives of a terrified woman and her three children by detaining her violent husband. The officers heard the children’s screams and smashed their way in using a neighbour’s hammer. They found the offender punching his wife and used PAVA and Taser against him to little effect. Finally, they managed to bundle him to the ground. The man received a 16-year jail sentence. “They saved the lives of this family, plain and simple,” said Thames Valley Police Federation Chair Craig O’Leary.


PCs Paul Newman and Holly Necchi stopped a VW Golf linked to gangs and drug dealing. As they searched the car, the suspect made a run for it and climbed into a storm drain. PC Newman followed him and ended up in a horrific battle with the suspect in a confined space. The suspect tried to gouge the officer’s eyes and drown him. PC Newman feared he was about to die but managed to hit his attacker with a torch. PC Necchi helped PC Newman restrain and detain the offender who was later jailed for nine years.


WEST YORKSHIRE PC Neil Masheder (pictured left) was off-duty and shopping when he spotted a stolen car that had been used in two knifepoint robberies. He rang the control room and attempted to detain the driver. There was a violent struggle but PC Masheder


got the suspect under control despite having no uniform or protective equipment to rely on. The man’s accomplices fled but were later caught. West Yorkshire Police Federation Chair Brian Booth commented: “These three violent and despicable criminals were armed and dangerous and had already robbed and threatened several people at knife-point. If Neil hadn’t bravely intervened on his day off, they would have gone on to carry out a lot more violent crime.”


WARWICKSHIRE


BRAVERY AWARDS


A man armed with a deadly Samurai sword was stopped in Bedworth town centre by PCs James Fitzmaurice (above right) and Andrew Hoey (above left). He ignored repeated instructions to drop the weapon and the officers were forced to use PAVA and Taser to stop him in his tracks. He was found in possession of five blades in total. Simon Payne, Chair of Warwickshire Police Federation, said: “James and Andrew ran towards danger, knowing full well what they were facing. Their bravery and professionalism in protecting the public was at the forefront of their actions.”


WILTSHIRE


PC Chris Miller (pictured above) plunged into a freezing canal to save a woman who had been spotted floating face down. Deciding he couldn’t wait for fire crew support, he waded out to the woman and managed to drag her to the bank. Incredibly, she was still conscious. PC Miller stayed with her and managed to keep her warm until ambulance teams arrived. “PC Miller undoubtedly saved this woman’s life and risked his own safety in doing so,” said Wiltshire Police Federation Chair Mark Andrews.
