Red Snapper Group (RSG) have received a Chief Constables Award from West Midlands Police (WMP) in recognition of the support they have provided WMP throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
The prestigious award was presented to RSG by Chief Constable Sir David Thompson, QPM, DL, along with the following message:
“On behalf of West Midlands Police thank you for supporting us in our response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The communities of the West Midlands have benefited greatly from your generosity during these difficult times.
No matter how large or small, the humanity and selfless service shown by so many across the region during the Covid-19 pandemic has been truly inspiring. I am delighted to present you with a Chief Constable’s Award as a token of my appreciation.
Once again, thank you.”
Upon receiving the Chief Constables Award, Martin Jerrold, Managing Director of RSG had this to say:
“We’re so grateful for this award and the recognition which comes with it. RSG prides itself on having a mission. Our purpose is to be a trusted, reliable partner to WMP to assist the organisation in achieving its goal and meet its challenges. We’re so pleased we were able to do our modest bit through these difficult times. Thank you.”
As the pandemic unfolded in 2020, West Midlands Police were facing significant workforce issues related to COVID-19, with a number of staff self-isolating, shielding, or recovering from exposure to the virus.
During this time, WMP relied on the contingent labour services, managed services and comprehensive support provided by the team at Red Snapper Group.
RSG deployed a multidisciplinary range of staff, including: front desk officers across the force, investigation consultants to ROCU, homicide and PPU, in addition to workers within criminal justice and professional standards.
More than 55 RSG workers were deployed at WMP at a given time during the height of the pandemic.
The team at RSG are very proud to have been able to have provided these services when they were needed most and are honoured to have received the Chief Constables Award.
