The annual Police Bravery Awards recognise the selflessness of officers who have put the safety of others before their own.
Hosted by the Police Federation of England and Wales, the 2022 edition was held in mid-July, when a total of 76 nominees from 39 forces were lauded for their acts of courage and sense of duty in the face of danger.
PC Steph Allinson was Cheshire’s representative at this year’s event.
She shares her story with host Andrew Simpson before the ceremony in London, where they were joined by Federation national chair Steve Hartshorn and Jamie Thompson, Cheshire branch chairman.
