OFFICERS WHO RAN TOWARDS DANGER


Daniel Stride


Presenting the second batch of our 2020 Police Bravery Awards nominees… The 25th annual awards are sponsored by Police Mutual and, while we cannot honour our nominees in person until July 2021, we are proud to showcase their incredible deeds here. The remaining nominees will be revealed in our December edition.


HUMBERSIDE


Officers tackled a man who walked into a bank carrying a meat cleaver and a drum of petrol. Firearms officers entered the branch of Barclays and found the suspect attempting to ignite the fuel. They discharged two fire extinguishers and deployed a Taser. The suspect fled and was pursued by several officers until firearms units were able to stop him. Twelve officers were credited with bringing the incident to a safe conclusion including PCs Robert

Toyn, Joe Gorman, Amy Edwards, Olivia Bailey and Neil House. The seven other officers wish to remain anonymous.


KENT


PC Daniel Stride and a colleague were called to reports of a domestic burglary. They found the property in darkness and became concerned for the state of mind of the informant. While they waited for an ambulance, the man pulled a large kitchen knife from a drawer and attacked PC Stride, stabbing him twice in the chest, just catching his body armour. The officer was unable to reach his protective equipment and instead grabbed the knife, which cut his fingers. He managed to pin it, and his assailant, to a bed. Neil Mennie, Chair of Kent Police Federation, said PC Stride had shown “not just policing skill but unbelievable courage and determination”.


LEICESTERSHIRE


PCs Steve Isherwood, Stephen Williams and Alex Cullum-Kenyon saved the life of a knife man who cut his own throat. They were responding to a domestic incident and found the suspect smashing up his flat. He was alleged to have tried to throw his partner down the stairs. He then started cutting himself. PC Williams stemmed the blood using a towel and the officers administered crucial first aid as they waited for an ambulance.


Leicestershire Police Federation Chair Dave Stokes said their quick actions had undoubtedly saved the man’s life.
