Former Suffolk police sergeant, Neil Boast, who helped establish the Town Pastors scheme has been applauded for his services to Suffolk Police and volunteering with an MBE.
The Town Pastors offer assistance to anyone who needs it during nights out. Since starting during 2005 in Ipswich the scheme has been set up in nine different towns.
Neil Boast, 51, worked for Suffolk Police for more than 32 years and spearheaded the Town Pastors initiative, said:
“It’s fantastic and I’m overwhelmed. It makes you reflect on your whole life and who has invested in you, cared for you, loved you and even criticised you because they drive you on to keep on doing things.”
Well done to Neil from CNI Network... :-)
