A ‘professional and compassionate’ Haverfordwest police officer has been awarded the title of Newcomer of the Year at the Dyfed-Powys Police annual awards.
Emily Silvester, who has been a police constable for less than two years, has been described as competent ‘beyond her years of service’. She was put forward for the award by a group of her colleagues.
PC Daniel Richards said: “Emily carries out the role as if she has been a police officer for many years. She is cool, calm and collected and nothing seems to phase her. Since passing her tutorship, Emily has gone from strength to strength. She is a valued member of our team.”
Sergeant Antonia Trueman continued: “It is difficult to highlight one particular time Emily was outstanding - she is a consistently hardworking, professional and compassionate police officer.
“She is a role model to everyone around her. You would never know how new to the job she is because she carries out her role with competence beyond her years of service.”
