A Hemel Hempstead-based police officer has won a prestigious award in last month’s Chief Constable’s Awards.

PC Jake Smith from the Dacorum Intervention Team won the Intervention Officer of the Year award.

A spokesperson for Hertfordshire Police said: “His energy and enthusiasm for his role is second to none, as is his attention to detail and standard of work.

“Jake regularly coaches new officers, dedicating a lot of time and effort to each colleague to get them to independent patrol. He puts in extra hours, takes on extra workload, and deals with each incident in a way that new officers can learn and progress their knowledge.”

Since the beginning of 2022, Jake has been awarded a Royal Humane Society Award, Head of Department Commendation, and a Good Work Minute and was a runner-up for the Frank Mason Award 2023.

PC Smith was given his award by Chief Constable Charlie Hall, who said on the night: “You should feel very proud of what you’ve achieved to be here this evening.”
