A “quiet and humble man” has been awarded a lifetime achievement award for his 41 years of work in the probation service.
Dr David Forbes, 63, of Clayhall, was presented with the gong for his “exemplary work” and having “a positive impact” on the lives of offenders and his colleagues.
Dr Forbes’ career took him across the southeast of England where he worked as manager and a research manager within the community.
He said: “I was pretty thrilled because it was nice to recognised for my work.
“I have retired since then so I guess it is perfect ending to my career.”
