GETTING in amongst the community has always been the top priority for Daventry PC Wyn Hughes.

Ever since he became a special constable more than seven years ago, the 51-year-old has been extremely passionate about getting back to the old fashioned methods of policing.

His work earned him the title of Northants Police student officer of the year in 2007.

And after he came up with the idea of creating a cycle team in Daventry, Wyn was this year handed the Officer of the Year award for the whole force.

He can now regularly be seen on his mountain bike patrolling the town as he bids to have as much contact as possible with the community.
