“The All Wales Special Constabulary Team of the Year Award focuses on a special constabulary team from Wales that has made the biggest contribution to policing in their community this year.

“Special Constables are such a vital part of the wider Gwent Police family and their contribution is extremely valuable. They make a real difference in helping to ensure our communities feel safe and reassured and the work they do cannot be overestimated.
