Rotary President Malcom Pascoe presenting the Annual Police Award to Constable Ella Gooding
The annual Police Award ceremony was held at the club’s last dinner meeting. Rotary Convenor David Owen (himself a member of the Police Force in the UK for over 30 years) commenced the ceremony by introducing Area Commander Inspector Rod Honan. Rod then briefly shared his career journey in the Police force before introducing the members of the Ormiston based team attending the function. He then went to the highlight of the evening announcing this year’s award recipient as Constable Ella Gooding.
Ella is currently in an acting Sergeant role and heads up an Area Prevention Unit (APU) of four people who deal with potentially high-risk crime in the area. In announcing Ella as the winner of this year’s award Rod Honan said that Ella has a 6th Sense for assessing potential crimes and taking the necessary action to prevent them occurring. 

The Award was presented to Ella by Rotary President Malcolm Pascoe who added his own commendation along with a big thank you for work that the Police do in the area keeping us all safe.
