GREAT Dunmow's very own neighbourhood police officer has been recognised for his outstanding long service.

PC Neville Hayden will receive a commendation for his efforts in providing 22 years of service to Essex police force.

The long service and good conduct medal will be presented to him at a special evening awards ceremony to be held at Shire Hall in Chelmsford on Wednesday March 26.

The award was originally established as a result of the work police officers during the bombing in the Second World War when King George VI was anxious to show that their devotion to duty should not pass without recognition.

Officers, members of the special constabulary and support staff have been invited to the ceremony when Lord Lieutenant of Essex Lord Petre will present the winners with their medal. He said: "The presentation of this medal is a way of showing appreciation of the officers receiving it, and also their families who have supported them in their work over many years."
