WELL done to Jackie Ross, who has re­ceived the ac­co­lade of Spe­cial Con­sta­ble of the Year at the 2017 Scot­tish Po­lice Ex­cel­lence Awards cer­e­mony at the Tul­lial­lan Po­lice Col­lege.

A de­lighted Jackie, who has com­pleted close on 11 years as spe­cial con­sta­ble on Is­lay and Jura, was pre­sented with her award by the Jus­tice Sec­re­tary Michael Mathe­son.

Also on hand to con­grat­u­late the win­ning Ileach was Lord Robert­son of Port Ellen, whose fa­ther and grand­fa­ther were both po­lice of­fi­cers on the is­land.

Con­grat­u­la­tions are also due to John Roun­tree, David MacPherson and Dou­glas Clyne, who have com­pleted 30 years of de­voted ser­vice with the lo­cal fire­fight­ers.

The trio’s ex­cel­lent con­tri­bu­tion to this vi­tal fire and res­cue ser­vice has not gone un­marked.
