Royal Navy Police Officer receives excellence award

28 November 2017
Royal Navy Police Officer Natalie Sikora has been presented with an award for her excellence in developing effective relationships.

Leading Regulator Sikora was awarded a Provost Marshal (Navy) commendation in a ceremony at HMS Sultan.

She was recognised for her ability to develop effective relations within the establishment, and her exceptional report writing and analytic skills.

Natalie felt inspired to transfer from being a Writer to a member of the RNP team while serving on HMS Portland.

Despite being relatively new to the branch and the most junior member of the Sultan RNP team, she has adapted exceptionally well to her new surroundings.

I enjoy my job and I think it’s important that people know that we are approachable and we’re not just there to get people in trouble

She was presented with her award by Provost Marshal, Commander Jack Hawkins, the Chief Officer of the RNP.

He said, “This is quite an achievement to get given this award today. Leading Reg Sikora is relatively new into the branch and she has become an invaluable member of the team.”

“She has demonstrated that she has the knowledge, intellect and initiative to approach tasks in a mature manner and has demonstrated excellent communication skills when talking with outside agencies.

They’re all qualities of a more senior person and they are just some of the outstanding achievements that have caused me to especially visit her today and recognise the work she has done.”

Natalie said, “I am really humbled and it’s really nice to be recognised, but it goes to the team that I work with. I couldn’t wish to be working with a better team as they are so inspiring and knowledgeable and it just works.”

“I enjoy my job and I think it’s important that people know that we are approachable and we’re not just there to get people in trouble.”
