Detective cops a top police award; In Brief.

A DETECTIVE in Coventry has won a national award for supporting the victims of sex crimes and bringing their attackers to justice.

Det Con Clive Leftwich, aged 45, started off working in Hillfields before joining West Midlands Police's public protection unit.

The officer, who is still based at Coventry Central police station, received the accolade from the Association of Chief Police Officers.

"It was such an honour to be recognised by my colleagues across the country and to receive this award," he said. "The award is testimony to the courage of the thousands of victims of sexual offences we have helped over the years.

"If it were not for their bravery, our job of locking up predators would be much more difficult.

"This award is as much for them as it is for me."
