PCSO Ghazal Pakzad’s project provided hot and cold food to street drinkers, rough sleepers and beggars.
A PCSO who set up a project tackling anti-social behaviour by troubled individuals in Harlesden has been given an award.
PCSO Ghazal Pakzad was the brains behind ‘The Evening Break’ which provided hot and cold food to street drinkers, rough sleepers and beggars.
The programme aimed to keep them off the streets and prevent them carrying out anti-social behaviour.
The PCSO dedicated her spare time to help the individuals after she noticed an increase in Harlesden during the latter part of 2011 and into 2012.
She worked with The Salvation Army, Cricklewood Homeless Concern, Thames reach and other outreach agencies to establish the project which has resulted in her receiving a Brent Community Champion awards.
Sergeant Neil Tulloch from Wembley Central Safer Neighbourhoods Team, where she is now based, nominated her for the award.

He said: “Ghazal did this piece of work before she came to the Wembley Central SNT but when I heard about it I felt it deserved recognition.
“It appears that it is unusual for members of the police service to be given an award of this type but I feel the commitment and dedication shown by Ghazal in making a difference to some people’s lives in Brent is why she was given the award.”
