This prestigious award was chosen and presented by Chief Constable for North Wales Police, Carl Foulkes, at an award ceremony at the St George Hotel in Llandudno.
Eve is pictured receiving her award from the Chief Constable and the High Sheriffs for Clwyd and Gwynedd, Stephanie Catherall and Susan Jones. Eve has also been appointed as one of two High Sheriff Cadets for Clwyd, a highly respected role within the community.
Eve says she felt “honoured and delighted” to receive the award, following four years of voluntary service as a police cadet.
Eve joined the North Wales police cadets in September 2016 and since this time has taken part in 107 tours of duty totalling 279 hours.
A spokesperson for North Wales Police commented that “her dedication truly demonstrates the purpose of the cadet scheme which is to encourage the spirit of good citizenship.”
Some of the duties and events that Eve has been involved with include, Remembrance Day parades, crime reduction initiatives and numerous charity and community events.
Eve has thoroughly enjoyed her time in the cadets and would strongly recommend it to other young people with an interest in policing and community service.
She feels that her experiences have firmed up her plans to pursue a career in the police and she has enjoyed a range of opportunities including guest speaker events and a recent custody visit.
