West Midlands Police officers win at national awards

Solihull Editorial 17th Oct, 2023   0

TWO West Midland police officers have been recognised at Police Now’s national Alumni Impact Awards for their outstanding contributions to frontline policing.

The annual Alumni Impact Awards celebrate the achievements of officers across England and Wales who have graduated from Police Now’s two-year programmes.

Detective Constable Georgia Waldron was the Officer in Charge for a violent stranger rape investigation, which was later covered on BBC’s CSI: The Real Forensics.

DC Waldron led the complex investigation and delivered exceptional support to the victim.

As a result, the offender was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 12 years behind bars.

She said: “My priority was to support and secure justice for a young woman who had gone through the most traumatic event of her life.

“She showed incredible bravery throughout the investigation and her support has allowed us to remove a dangerous individual from the streets.

“This case was a great example of a team coming together to build a casefile and secure charges swiftly, while the suspect was still in custody.”

Police Constable Nilufar Ali joined the force in 2019 via Police Now’s National Graduate Leadership Programme.

PC Ali stepped into the Birmingham West Diversity and Inclusion Co-Lead role in 2021, collaborating with officers of senior ranks to identify opportunities to create more inclusive cultures.

She said: “I encourage you all to take advantage of the opportunities available to you within policing, and especially within Police Now’s network.

“Through working collaboratively with your colleagues and taking the time to continuously develop as leaders, you really can make a difference within your roles.”
