Award for long-serving Kenilworth bobby Jon

A former Rugby police officer has been given a special commendation following 45 years of service.

Jonathan Busby, 61, received the Chief Constable’s Commendation on Tuesday (May 9th) by the Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire Tim Cox.

“A role model for many, Jon has demonstrated the highest possible standards of fairness, integrity and impartiality and will formally retire on July 2, 2017,” a police spokesperson said.

“His award is in recognition of everything he has done to support of the community and policing over the last 45 years.”

He first joined Warwickshire and Coventry Police as a Police Cadet in 1972 at the age of 16.
