Petrit Laurence and Jurgita Cekaviciute. Petrit and Jurgita won this award in recognition of their bravery when trying to save a man’s life.
The pair work for CIS Security Ltd and are based at Homes for Islington where last year a man who had been a victim of a robbery came to the officers with a stab wound to his arm. The victim’s condition was deteriorating quickly but both officers took control of the situation with Petrit carrying out first aid and keeping the man calm and conscious and Jurgita phoning the emergency services and looking after the victim’s younger brother who was in a state of shock. Following the incident the ambulance crew praised Petrit and Jurgita for their assistance and said that without them the victim’s condition could have been fatal.
