District Commanders Commendation Presentation

On Monday 21st June 2020 Mr Zeeshan Rashid attended Brighouse Police Station where he was presented with a District Commanders Commendation.

In September 2019 Mr Rashid and his friend were seen by officers on patrol talking to a distressed male on Elland Bridge.  When officers approached, the male became more agitated and it was clear he was stood on the wrong side of the bridge, on a very narrow ledge, threatening to jump into the fast flowing water below.

Mr Rashid and his friend built up a rapport with the male who was clearly intoxicated and they managed to gain control of him and pull him over to the right side of the bridge for officers to assist.

Both Mr Rashid and his friend ensured a swift and safe conclusion to this incident and saved the life of someone in their hour of need.
