Lancashire’s Deputy PCC receives MBE

D/PCC Andy Pratt received an MBE from Lord Shuttleworth during an investiture at Lancaster Castle.

He was given the award for the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2021, but the presentation has only just taken place due to the pandemic.

His MBE was awarded for his charity and community work, particularly during the pandemic.

Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Pratt retired from the police - having reached the rank of Superintendent in 2010.

Since then he has taken on a range of voluntary roles including for Preston and South Ribble Street Pastors and Young Lancashire, before becoming D/PCC in 2021.

His portfolio includes being Chair of the Lancashire Road Safety Partnership, Lancashire Criminal Justice Board and Lead for Lancashire Victim’s Services.  

Speaking after the investiture Andy said: “It is an enormous privilege to be awarded an MBE and I'm proud that the award recognises the important role of volunteers during a really challenging time and for the hard work they display on a daily basis, and I am proud to be one of them.

"In my latest role as DPCC I have the pleasure of working with some fantastic members of the community, and I'm pleased to now be in a position to lead the fight against crime and make people feel safer in all our communities."

Andrew Snowden, Lancashire’s Police and Crime Commissioner added: “This award is richly deserved and a great example of why Andy was my first choice to join me as Deputy Commissioner.

"I am proud of Andy and humbled to work alongside him. With decades of service with Lancashire Police, followed by another decade of voluntary and charity work, there is no one more suited to supporting my work to get tough on crime, support victims, and ensure all areas of Lancashire have access to the police when they need them.”
