Emma lands national award
A Leicestershire detective picked up a national award at this year's Police Federation of England and Wales National Detectives' Forum awards night.
Detective Constable Emma Kunne won the New Trainee Detective of the Year Award for making an impact early on in her career.
In particular, she was recognised for her work in the immediate aftermath of a murder within a community where tensions were high, acting as the family liaison of the deceased.
Working long hours to help the family, she managed to help with the completion of the remand file and was part of the professional hand-over to the murder investigation team.

"Emma was a worthy winner of this award," says Matt Robinson, secretary of Leicestershire Police Federation, "She has made an impressive start to her career as a detective and I wish her continued success in the future."
