Police Commendation Award

Police Tamaki Makaurau Awards Ceremony
Congratulations to Year 12 students Brooklyn Williams and Declan Honan-Crann, who attended the Police Tamaki Makaurau Awards Ceremony earlier this week, in recognition of their self-less act of bravery.

Brooklyn and Declan, pictured above with Police Commissioner, Mike Bush, were commended for their help in the apprehension of a robber who also assaulted a woman in New Lynn.

The boys intervened as the offender attempted to get away, restraining him until the police arrived and took him into custody. Declan also comforted the victim after the attack. The bravery and initiative showed by Declan and Brooklyn impressed the police. Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Kelly Farrant and Waitakere Area Commander Inspector Scott Webb visited the boys at school earlier in the year to praise them for a job well done.
