​“Lisa is extremely kind and we are so thankful she took the time to make Elise's dream a reality.”


Well done to PC Lisa Hall who has received a Wow! Award nomination after she helped make an autistic teenager’s 18th birthday extra special.


In her nomination, the girl’s mother said: “We would like to nominate Lisa for the Wow! Award because of the kindness and warmth she showed my daughter when she took the time to make her 18th birthday extra special.


“Lisa knew that Elise's dream was to be an officer for Durham Police but didn't know if her dream could be a reality due to having autism.


“Lisa invited her to headquarters and Elise had the best day of her life; she was able to experience a day in the life of a call handler, watching the calls being triaged and all of the staff made her feel so welcome.


“Had it not been for Lisa, Elise's dream would have been a little further away.

However, following her visit she was even more determined and has a place on the level 3 uniformed services course at New College to start in September.

 

Lisa is extremely kind and we are so thankful she took the time to make Elise's dream a reality.”
