NORTHUMBRIA


PC Tracy Cook was off duty and out with her children when she stopped three hood-wearing men stealing a motorbike. The trio followed her into an alley and punched and kicked her to get the bike back. PC Cook refused to release the bike and called out to residents to come to help, causing the youths to flee. When back-up arrived, they managed to arrest her attacker and his accomplices. Jim Gray, Chair of Northumbria Federation, said: “Going above and beyond is a phrase that’s used often, but it’s entirely applicable in this instance.”


NOTTINGHAMSHIRE


Sergeant Matthew Daley and Temporary Sergeant Jody Leonardi detained a gunman who trapped vulnerable residents in a burning building. Fire crews were forced to withdraw meaning 50 elderly people were at risk. PS Daley was struck over the head with a handgun by the suspect. T/ PS Leonardi used his ASP baton and both officers wrestled the offender to the ground. Nottinghamshire Police Federation Chair Mark Petrovic said: “Matthew and Jody’s actions were courageous and utterly selfless. They displayed extreme bravery in the face of immediate danger.”


SOUTH YORKSHIRE


PCs Emma Rae and Karen Gunnill tackled a violent, gun-toting man in Sheffield. Footage showed him firing at least one shot and pistol-whipping a man before leaving in a taxi. PC Rae followed the cab in her van and radioed a description. The suspect got out, incredibly pausing to pay the taxi driver, before running off. He ran into PC Gunnill and reached for the gun. PC Gunnill deployed her Taser and the officers made their arrest. South Yorkshire Police Federation Chair Steve Kent said:


“They are police officers through and through. They carried on towards that danger with one thought in their minds – to protect the public.”


Laura Kelly NORTH YORKSHIRE


PC Laura Kelly single-handedly defended families from a knifeman in a busy restaurant. She initially took details from the suspect, not realising he was the perpetrator. Then she spotted a concealed blade in his sleeve and took a few steps before radioing for assistance. The man started to wield the knife in the direction of diners. PC Kelly used her CAPTOR spray to keep him at bay until other officers arrived and the suspect was stopped using Taser. North Yorkshire Police Federation Chair Rob Bowles said: “Laura risked her safety to enable the public, including several children, to escape.”


SOUTH WALES


PC Thomas Scourfield and Sergeant Geraint Jenkins entered a burning building to try to rescue a 92-year- old man. PC Scourfield was off duty when he spotted the blaze. He heard screams and forced his way into the home, where he saw a woman throwing water onto an elderly man who was on the floor. He guided her to safety and went back in to rescue the man. PS Jenkins used soaked towels for protection to pull the man from the fire. He attempted CPR but the man died at the scene. South Wales Police Federation Chair Steve


Thomas Scourfield & Geraint Jenkins Treharne said:


“These two officers did everything they could. They put their own lives on the line to respond to an incident that they both happened upon.”
