Annually, the Rotary Club of Howick recognises a local Police Officer for the outstanding work done to help keep our community safe. Area Commander Wendy Spiller has always been extremely supportive and has, each year, presented the award on behalf of our Club.
This year it was Inspector Spiller’s turn to receive the award after stepping down from such a high profile and demanding job. Sadly, the presentation had to be over Zoom. Wendy shared a number of challenges faced by the Police over these Covid times, including her current challenge as the Commander of Operation Romeo, the Mercer Checkpoint. It’s amazing just what can be found in a car boot!

We wish Wendy every success as she moves into her new role as Director of the International Police Women’s Conference to be held in 2023 in NZ for the first time and thank her for all she has contributed to our community.
