ACTS of bravery in life threatening situations, and telling actions against crime were recognised by the NSW Police Force this week.

Police officers and Coffs Coast residents were commended for their courage.

Decorated officer Senior Constable Brad Jackson was a notable recipient of a Commissioner's Commendation for Courage.

Snr Const. Jackson was awarded for his part in the rescue of a woman stranded inside a submerged vehicle at Bonville during the floods of 2009.

"Snr Constable Jackson bravely placed his life on the line to save a civilian and for that the NSW Police Force and the general community is appreciative," Assistant Commissioner Carlene York said.

Coffs Coast resident Terry Allen was also recognised for helping police to detain a young offender, who stole a woman's handbag in a daylight robbery.

"This award ceremony is a great day for police to be acknowledged for their dedication and service to the community and the positive thing is that civilians are also recognised for risking their own safety to assist police," Commissioner York said.

Supt. Mark Holahan presented certificates of merit to Craig Shone and Jarrah Jervis and serving officers Snr. Const. Jonathon Murray, Snr. Const. James Hoare and Snr. Const. Matt Hinton.

Snr. Const. Brett Grenn earned a Commissioner's Citation and National Medals were awarded to Snr. Consts. David and Joleene Brooker, Srgt. Nicholas Brunyee, Snr. Const. Scott English and Snr. Const. David Fish.

Snr Const. Neville Middleton earned a 30-year clasp to his national service medal.

"This award ceremony is a great day for police to be acknowledged," Assistant Commissioner York said.
