Penryn PCSO honoured for dedication and 'infectious positivity'

Falmouth Packet: PCSO Lewis Vague accepts his commander's certificate from Supt Fielding PCSO Lewis Vague accepts his commander's certificate from Supt Fielding

The police officer charged with patrolling Penryn’s streets has been awarded for his dedication and “infectious positivity”.

Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) Lewis Vague was given a commander’s certificate by Superintendent Julie Fielding at the commander’s award ceremony in Bodmin earlier this month.

Supt Fielding commended Lewis on taking responsibility for the policing of Penryn and embracing “a higher level of responsibility.”

She said his award was in recognition of a string of good results achieved in the town, ranging from two property closures under antisocial behaviour legislation to organising proactive search warrants and helping other officers tackle crime and disorder.

His appearance in the Packet in January this year for helping a man who had collapsed in the street after suffering an epileptic fit was also applauded.

“PCSO Vague is highly motivated, enthusiastic and a credit to his community,” said Supt Fielding, “for his exceptional performance, I have pleasure in awarding him a commander’s certificate.”

Lewis said he had been nominated for the award by his sergeant and had no idea he was going to get it.

“It was a real pleasure. I was delighted to receive it really,” he said.

“I think it was a number of events recently, I’m guessing, that caused my sergeant to nominate me – the incident in Penryn the other day with the man found unconscious, a couple of recent property closures and the management of policing in Penryn as well.”

Adding: “It was really nice to receive it.”

Police commander for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, Supt Fielding, handed out a number of awards to officers and staff in recognition of their achievements at a ceremony in Bodmin Police Station on April 6.

Congratulations to the PCSO.
Sometimes the police come under a lot of criticism even though mostly unjustified, so it is always good to hear about all the positive things that happen within the local police service.

I lament this trend for the use of unsuitable adjectives in tribute articles, such as:

"She had a bubbly personality and an infectious smile"

Sounds dangerous and if I knew someone like that, I would keep well clear.
