Queen's Bravery Award For Luton Policeman
A Bedfordshire Police officer who lost his life in the line of duty has been awarded the Queen’s Commendation for Bravery
Police Constable Jonathan Henry died in Luton town centre on June 11, 2007 having responded to an emergency report of a man armed with a knife who had stabbed two members of the public.
Jon, aged 36 at the time of his death, together with his colleagues, challenged Tennyson Obih. During the incident Jon suffered several stab wounds and died shortly after.
Jon had joined Bedfordshire Police in May 2004 after working for 10 years as a floor fitter in the Luton area. He had many friends in the force and was known for his charismatic personality and exceptional sense of humour. Jon was married to Mary and has one daughter, Maggie.
Bedfordshire Police Chief Constable Colette Paul said: “I am extremely proud of Jon Henry who gave his life to protect others in the finest tradition of Bedfordshire Police. I am sure his family will be sad but very proud of him as we are. He will never be forgotten and this award goes some way to keeping his memory alive. “Sometimes we forget what police officers and their families do for the community every day. They face danger to protect the public.”
Bedfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Olly Martins said: “This award serves to remind us once again of the dangers police officers routinely face as they go about their daily job to protect the public and make Bedfordshire safer. Their courage should never be taken for granted. Sadly, no award can bring Jon back to his family, but it is right that his memory is honoured in this way.”
