Management at the Priory Shopping Centre were recently delighted to receive a letter from Notts Police commending the work of its security guard, Calum Cooper.

In early December, Calum assisted an officer who was detaining a male who was resisting arrest.

Calum’s bravery was recognised by the police at the scene who have since contacted the centre manager at the Priory to praise Calum for stepping in.

In his letter chief superintendent of Notts Police, Mark Holland, commented: “Without his intervention the situation could have turned quite nasty and I have no doubt that Calum’s assistance prevented a potential assault.”

“On behalf of Notts Police please thank Calum for the assistance he gave to my officers. He is a credit to your company”.

This is not the first time that Calum’s hard work has been recognised. In April 2013 he, along with the shopping centre’s entire security team, received an award for “Best National Security Team” at the British Security Industry Association Awards.
