A pioneering theatre production warning young people about the causes of road traffic accidents was recognised at an awards event in Maidstone on 15 March, by the High Sheriff of Kent, George Jessel.
PC Darren Chapman from Kent Police’s roads policing unit attended the ceremony at Sessions House to receive an award for Licence to Kill, an initiative to help reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries on the county’s roads. It was launched in 2007 by Kent Police, Kent County Council, Medway Council, South East Coast Ambulance Service and Kent Fire and Rescue Service.
Phil Filmer, Medway Council’s portfolio holder for frontline services, said: "I am extremely pleased that the Licence to Kill production has been awarded a High Sheriff's Award.
"The road safety intervention reminds our future road users of the huge responsibility they have each time they get into a car. I would also like to thank all the speakers that give their time to help educate young people."
