Hertfordshire Constabulary reward in-laws for 500 hours service

TWO in-laws have been recognised for their voluntary work with Hertfordshire Constabulary – after clocking up 250 hours of service each.

Brothers-in-law Joe Schneider and Roy Ellis, who both work in the tape library at Hatfield Police Station, were given certificates by chief inspector Dave Newsome in appreciation of their achievement.

Joe, 67, and Roy, 71, have volunteered at the Constabulary for the past 10 years starting at Bushey Police Station, before being transferred to Borehamwood.

They have been at Hatfield for the past 18 months.

Joe said: “We have a lot to offer, we have useful skills and experience and we want to put them to good use.
