Essex Police officers and staff have been recognised in the Queen's New Year's Honours List.

Jenny Brouard will receive an honour for her voluntary and charitable services, and five staff will receive a Queen’s Police Medal for services to policing. They are Detective Inspector Caroline Williams, Detective Chief Inspector Jasmine Frost, Detective Chief Inspector Martin Pasmore, Chief Superintendent Stuart Hooper, and Detective Inspector Michelle Stoten.

Chief Constable Ben-Julian Harrington said: “Our officers, staff and volunteers go above and beyond every day of the year to protect victims, support the vulnerable and bring criminals to justice. It’s a privilege to see these six individuals honoured in this way."

Jenny Brouard created an annual Volunteers Awards evening in 2008. She now oversees the biggest scheme in the country. She has gathered 148 Active Citizens, volunteers who support teams with house-to-house enquiries, reassurance visits and community-based activities.  She assumed responsibility for the Volunteer Police Cadets in 2018 and there are now more than 400 cadets, with three new units being introduced.

Detective Inspector Caroline Williams has been with the force for 26 years and works in preventing and investigating child and adult sexual exploitation and Female Genital Mutilation. Her work has been supported and commended by survivor groups and partner agencies.
