Officer in Charge of the Community Policing Division(CPD), Superintendent Na’imah Astwood today congratulated PC Shandora Burrows – the 2020 Staff Person of the year.
PC Shandora Burrows is also one of the newest constables to complete the latest Recruit Foundation Course in March 2020.
Announcing the selection, Supt Astwood said: “PC Burrows has been unwavering in the performance of her duties and is repeatedly hailed by her colleagues, for her positive approach to her role and dedication to rise to many challenges.
“Her positive ‘can do’ attitude, has been recognized as she consistently takes the extra step, ultimately exuding the ethos of ‘First Door Right Door!’ After reading of her accomplishments, we feel she is more than deserving of being selected as the CPD Staff Person of the year 2020.”
‘First Door Right Door’ is the concept implemented by the Supt Astwood to ensure members of the public, as well as our colleagues, receive the assistance they require and/or are put on the path to receiving that assistance at the very 7rst point of contact with the organisation.
Supt Astwood admitted the final selection was no easy task: “It was quiet pleasing for the selection panel and me to review the great work and continued high level of professionalism from CPD staff, as with the rest of the service over the last year. The nominations submi8ed for CPD Staff Person 2020, were all impressive and I wish to highlight two other nominees. They are Police
Sergeant Stephen Gunn and Police Constable Donna Desilva, who both stood out as being among the top nominations submitted.
“Well done to you all. We continue to take pride in you.”
