A police officer in Brent has been awarded for his work surrounding a traffic collision.
Det Con Charlie Pulling, who worked in the Met’s serious collision investigation unit at Alperton Traffic Garage, won the Livia Award for professionalism and service to justice at a ceremony in Westminster on November 12.
Det Con Pulling, who joined the Met in 2004, was praised for his investigation of a road traffic collision on August 26, 2016, which resulted in serious injury to a 59-year-old man and his two-year-old grandson in Harrow.
He established that a suspect had been using his mobile phone while driving, which was proved in court.
The man was sentenced to two years in jail, suspended for two years.
Det Con Pulling “showed the highest level of support for the family of the victims, as well as taking every possible step in pursuit of justice,” a spokesman said.
