Solihull Editorial 3rd Feb, 2017   0

CHIEF Superintendent Bas Javid of Solihull Police has been named uniformed services person of the year in the British Muslim Awards.

He was selected ahead of other emergency services and military personnel; receiving the honour at a ceremony attended by more than 400 people in Leicester last week.

Bas joined West Midlands Police as Detective Chief Inspector in 2007 – having spent 13 years at Avon & Somerset after starting as a beat bobby.

He was previously with the Royal Navy and his military service included the Persian Gulf War – for which he received a commendation for teamwork and bravery.




During his time with WMP he has risen through the ranks while based in #Sandwell and #Birmingham before becoming Chief Supt at Solihull last year.

Bas said: “It was a huge honour just to be nominated and I am extremely proud to have won the award.


“I feel privileged to be a Chief Superintendent at West Midlands Police and work alongside such dedicated and committed teams.

“WMP is such a diverse force with staff from many different, cultural backgrounds which is also something I take great pride in.
