Positive policing earns award
HELPING victims of crime find the assistance they need, has earned Acting Senior Constable Fleur Nicholls this month’s Townsville District Police Officer of the Year award.
Act Sen Const. Nicholls said she was “very flattered” to take out the award for her work with the police prosecution.
“We’ve had a number of matters in court that have required victim impact statements, that I’ve helped to guide down to Victims Assist,” Act Sen Const. Nicholls said.
“I became more aware of the work Victims Assist do and have made a point of insuring wherever I could, to try and help them through the process.”
She it was important for the community to see the work police put in behind the scenes.
“It is good for building community relations and the better our relations are with the community, the more likely they are to see us in a more positive light.”
