Customer Service Excellence 2013 Rotary Police Officer of the Year Award – nominate now.

Eastwood Commander, Supt Jim Stewart, is seeking nominations for the Customer Service Excellence category of the 2013 Rotary Police Officer of the Year.

Since 2010, the Rotary Club of Sydney, on behalf of the Rotary Clubs of NSW, has hosted the annual awards to honour police officers, unsworn employees and volunteers who display outstanding dedication and diligence in their service to local communities.

Nominations traditionally come from Rotary Clubs or from within police ranks (for example, by a local area commander). However, a new category was added this year – the Customer Service Excellence Award – that allows members of the public to nominate a sworn or unsworn officer with whom they have had positive personal dealings.

The Customer Service Excellence Award recognises high standards of customer service through personal dealings with customers and overall contribution to NSW Police Force’s customer-service policy – through their involvement in communications, problem solving and innovation.

Commander Stewart is asking you, the local community, to recognise a police officer, employee or volunteer whose customer service went beyond their normal duties by making themselves accessible, being professional, taking appropriate action and keeping you informed.

The winners will be announced at a gala dinner at Darling Harbour restaurant “Dockside” on Friday 8 November 2013.

Nominations are now open and will close on the 27 September 2013.
