A police constable who has served for 14 years with the Critical Incident Stress Management team has been recognised for his work with the service.

A police spokesman said Pc McKeon Stephens worked with the unit - dedicated to help people deal with traumatic events - while performing his regular duties as a police officer.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Martin Weekes, who recently presented Pc Stephens with a certificate of recognition, said: “Having known Pc Stephens since he first joined the service as a cadet, I have watched him progress through its various units with a dedication to duty that has served him well as a member of the CISM team.

“He has proven himself an asset to the organisation.”

The CISM programme is designed to help those involved in critical incidents share their experiences, vent emotions, learn about stress reactions and get referrals for professional help if required.
