Kingdom officer presented with Good Citizens Award

clip_image002Daniel Hubbard, Kingdom’s team leader on the Environmental Protection team that provides environmental protection services to Birmingham City Council, has been awarded an LPU Good Citizens Award for his brave actions in an incident earlier this year.

The incident took place in February when Daniel helped the police to catch two men who had assaulted and robbed a man. Kingdom reported the incident in full back in May in an article which can be read here.

Daniel was presented with his award on 13th October 2015 by the Chief Superintendent of West Midlands Police, Emma Barnett, who said:

“This award recognises your public spirited actions on Sunday 15th of February 2015 when you witnessed the robbery and assault of a male.

You immediately contacted the police and provided details of the incident, location and a description of the offenders. You also chased the offenders who ran away from the scene whilst maintaining commentary with police.

Police officers attended and both offenders were arrested and subsequently charged with robbery.

Your decisive actions during this incident are highly praised.”

Commenting on the award, Michael Fisher, Director of Kingdom’s Environmental Protection Division said: “Daniel is an excellent ambassador for both Kingdom and Birmingham City Council. This is not an isolated case and Daniel has never shirked his responsibility as a uniformed presence in the city centre of Birmingham, where he has witnessed members of partner groups such as the police encountering problems. Congratulations Daniel – very well deserved!”
