Award: Pc Shandora Burrows

An officer who qualified less than a year ago has won the community policing division’s staff member of the year award for 2020.

Superindent Na’imah Astwood, the officer in charge of community policing, said Shandora Burrows, who completed the recruit foundation course last March, received the reward because of her “positive ‘can do’ attitude”.

She added: said: “Pc Burrows has been unwavering in the performance of her duties and is repeatedly hailed by her colleagues, for her positive approach to her role and dedication to rise to many challenges.”

Superintendent Astwood introduced the “First Door, Right Door” process to make sure members of the public, as well as police colleagues, got the assistance they needed or were directed to the right place at the first point of contact.

She said: “Her positive ‘can do’ attitude has been recognized as she consistently takes the extra step, ultimately exuding the ethos of ‘First Door, Right Door.’

“After reading of her accomplishments, we feel she is more than deserving of being selected as the CPD staff person of the year 2020.”

Superintendent Astwood singled out two other nominees, Sergeant Stephen Gunn and Pc Donna DeSilva, for their contributions.
