ORANGE police prosecutor Sergeant Andrew Bobin has been singled out as one of the state’s top police officers after been named a finalist in this year’s Rotary Clubs of NSW police officer of the year awards.
Police officers, civilian employees and volunteers with a “passion for their community and a quest for personal excellence” will be selected for awards in five categories.
Sergeant Bobin was nominated in the specialist operations/corporate services/non-local area command police officer of the year category.
Acting commander of Canobolas Local Area Command Inspector Peter Atkins said Sergeant Bobin’s nomination was well deserved.
“I wish him well with his nomination,” inspector Atkins said.
“He’s a dedicated, experienced prosecutor who does an exceptional job at Orange Local Court.
“He gives extra service to local police in regards to court adjournments and advice to police.”
Finalists for the awards were selected from nominations which came from either police commanders or winners of locally-based Rotary police officer of the year awards.
The judging panel consists of past Rotary Club presidents and a retired officer in an advisory capacity.
NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione said service to the community was the creed by which the NSW Police Force and Rotary stand.
“It is appropriate that in the 150th year of policing in NSW that we gather to acknowledge the service to the community by these officers and staff members,” Commissioner Scipione said.
The winners were announced at an awards ceremony in Sydney last night.
