POLICE officers and a hotel manager are to receive awards for their bravery or hard work in fighting crime.
The presentations are to take place at Halifax police headquarters tonight and will be hosted by Calderdale police commander Chief Supt Max Mclean.
He said: "People face challenging situations every day of their lives.
"Some do so through their choice of career and others are there by chance.
"Those being commended have all gone that extra mile and shown great commitment towards making Calderdale a safer place to live. Their efforts should be praised."
The awards include divisional commander's commendations, judges' commendations, one Police Long-Service Medal and one St John Ambulance award.
Divisional commander's commendations will be awarded to:
