At the Women in Business Awards, the winners in the Woman in Uniform category were East Sussex police women.
Eastbourne’s Inspector Rachel Barrow was one of several women who attended Battle Police station to receive this award on behalf of all women in policing across East Sussex. She said, “It was clear from speaking to others on the day that there is a sense of pride and a real appreciation that people have taken the time to nominate and recognise the work that we do. Often, it is all too easy to criticise the police, this award is refreshing and shows the value of our day to day hard work and commitment. Thank you to those who have taken the time to vote.”
