Three police officers and a special constable were rewarded for their work in convicting one of Seán Noctor’s killers at a ceremony last night.
Thames Valley Police held a commendation ceremony to recognise officers, volunteers, PCSOs and special constables who have displayed exceptional professionalism, courage and initiative.
It also saw another officer recognised for his role in talking down a man threatening to jump from a multi-storey car park in Windsor.
PC Robert Drabwell was commended at the ceremony in Windsor Guildhall for helping to stop a man leap from the top of a multi-storey car park in Victoria Street.
A witness first saw the man on June 15, sitting on the top of the 206-space car park. When PC Drabwell arrived he found the drunk man drinking from a vodka bottle, in an emotional state and indicating he was going to jump.
PC Drabwell bravely climbed up a wall and hung on to a ladder, using his other hand to stop the man falling off the ledge. The suicidal man then attempted to push himself over the ledge, but the police officer held him back until fellow officers arrived.
Ahead of being presented with the commendation, Inspector Emily Roberts said: "PC Drabwell placed himself in danger whilst trying to prevent this male from suffering serious, if not life threatening injuries."
He received a commendation for 'his courage and tenacity leading to preservation of life'.
Three officers and a special constable were rewarded for their work in securing a conviction after Seán Noctor's death.
The 24-year-old was killed after he was stabbed in Windsor on his way home from a night out.
PCs Joseph Buckley, Christopher Harrison, Chelsey Hook and Special Constable Ravi Kumar were recognised for their role in securing 'invaluable' evidence which led to a lengthy prison sentence. Jordan Doyle, from Luton, will serve a minimum of 21 years for his part in Seán's death.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
