PEOPLE are being given the chance to nominate someone from their community for the Hertfordshire Police Authority's Safer Neighbourhood Awards.

The awards are split into four categories including the Community Safety Citizen’s Award, which is given to members of the public who have helped towards the safety and reassurance of their community.

There are also awards for Neighbourhood Police Officer of the year, Police Community Support Officer of the year and Neighbourhood Policing Team of the year.

There will be heats in all four categories in each of the county’s ten boroughs or districts.

Winners of these heats will then be invited to the final in May where winners for the whole county will be announced.

The closing date for nominations is January 27 and forms can be found on Hertfordshire Police Authority’s website.
