No2H8 award nomination for Kent Community Liaison Officer

Community Liaison Officer Michael Cronin was nominated for the Law Enforcement Upstander Award at the 2017 No2H8 Crime Awards.

Nominations are made anonymously for an officer who has been proactively reinforcing the need for people to report hate crimes or incidents. As a nominee Michael has shown significant commitment and dedication in cases that have involved hate crime.

Michael said: “It was such an honour to be nominated for this award, everyone who was nominated has done so much to tackle hate crime and discrimination.

“I truly enjoy my job and that I get to take positive, proactive action to help communities. I am able to see issues at an early stage and build trust with hard to reach groups. To be recognised for doing this is just fantastic.”

Michael has been working with communities for the past 17 years to break down barriers and give a voice to those who may not feel they can speak out against the abuse or harassment they are experiencing.

Head of Public Protection and Partnership Command, Detective Chief Superintendent Tom Richards said: “Michael has worked diligently with communities to build trust and encourage open conversations with officers. He is a true ambassador for all of policing across Kent.
