In the March issue of World’s Fair we reported that Patrick Hill had received a commendation for bravery from the West Midlands Police for coming to the assistance of two police officers in West Bromwich Town Centre when they were being attacked. He attended an awards ceremony in the Midlands to receive his award.
We can now report that Patrick was put forward for a national award and is set to receive a Silver Medal under the National Police Public Bravery Awards scheme.
The scheme recognises “the assistance provided by members of the public who have intervened to foil criminal acts and come to the assistance of others. The honour recognises outstanding acts of bravery or meritorious devotion to civic duty, in support of the police, and thereby contributing to the maintenance of law and order.”
Patrick will be attending a ceremony in November to receive his award. Congratulations, Patrick Hill!
