John Clark, a Neighbourhood Officer at Radian, has been recognised for excellent service at the Southampton Commander’s Reward and Recognition Ceremony.
John, who has worked as a Neighbourhood Officer for two years, received a Southampton Commander’s Congratulations at the prestigious event on Thursday 12th January, in the Mayor’s Parlour at Southampton City Council.
Awarded for his commitment to working in partnership with Hampshire Constabulary, John was nominated by Inspector Kerry Loveless. He was recognised at the event for his integral support to the Southampton West Neighbourhood Policing team in helping to tackle anti-social behaviour and serious crime in Southampton and the surrounding areas.
He commented: “It is an honour to accept this award alongside a number of remarkable individuals, who work tirelessly to keep the Southampton district safe.
“This award is a tribute to what we have achieved for Radian residents by delivering quality neighbourhood services that help build strong community relations and empower people to build great communities. I hope that people living in our communities feel assured that we’re doing our utmost to reduce issues such as anti-social behaviour, and working to fully understand their future needs and requirements. There’s still a long way to go in tackling anti-social behaviour, but I feel positive that we’re making a decent dent in some big issues.
Bernadette Fry, Assistant Director of Neighbourhoods at Radian said: “John has taken on far more than his role as Neighbourhood Officer, constantly going above and beyond to ensure the safety of our residents and communities.
“The award is a great reflection of the breadth and quality of service provided not only by John, but all of our Neighbourhood Officers for those living in our properties, and the surrounding areas. The role of a Neighbourhood Officer is incredibly broad, not only covering anti-social behaviour but also working to provide tenancy advice to those living in Radian properties, supporting the allocation of properties and carrying out inspections to ensure our residents feel safe in their homes and communities. We are extremely grateful for their essential and boundless service.”
John received the award from The Right Worshipful Mayor of Southampton Councillor Catherine McEwing, Chief Inspector Beth Pirie and Superintendent Alison Heydari.
