Teenagers who showed 'exceptional courage' to save young woman commended at police ceremony

Four teenagers who showed 'exceptional courage' in saving a young woman's life have been recognised by Thames Valley Police.

The Windsor and Maidenhead LPA Commander's Commendation Awards Ceremony was held on Monday to honour those working within the police force and members of the public.

LPA commander Superintendent Kate Ford handed Jamie Hayes-Brown, 18, Sam Evans, 18, and Anthony Peters, 19, certificates for their swift actions, and passed on an award for Chantelle Embling, 19, who was unable to be there on the night.

The group worked together after finding an intoxicated woman in the river on a cold evening in November, throwing her a life-line and calling the emergency services.

PC Angela Ferrucci was recognised for her performance in supporting and developing the response to child sexual exploitation, particularly her work with the victims.

PC Ross White and PCSO Jason Miller were both commended for their determination in their pursuit of identifying a burglar.

Dedicated support to a victim of domestic harassment led to an award for PC Matthew Stocker and cadet leaders Wendy Mitchell and Stephen Stentiford were congratulated for their work with the youth section.

An officer who did not want to be named was commended for his investigation into a case of cannabis cultivation.

Attestation awards were also given to 12 cadets at the Beaumont Estate in Old Windsor.

The Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Eileen Quick, said: "It’s heart-warming to know there are police officers and PCSOs who have gone over and above in the line of duty.

"It does seem some outstanding work has gone on.

"To those members who banded together to save a life – there’s not anything more special that a human being can do than to save a life."
