Volunteers who check on the welfare of detainees in custody were presented with long-service awards by Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Sir Graham Bright.
Between them the 24 Independent Custody Visitors have clocked up 107 years’ service. Sir Graham handed out 15 long-service awards to the members of the scheme.
Commenting on the dedication of the team of volunteers, Sir Graham said: “I want to celebrate and acknowledge the long-service by many Independent Custody Visitor members and take time to thank them for the commitment they have given to volunteering for this vital role.
“They give up their spare time, often in unsocial hours of the day, to inspect and report on the treatment of detainees held in custody by Cambridgeshire Constabulary.”
Sir Graham handed one long service award to Geoffrey Rogers with Chief Superintendent Dan Vajzovic.
