Richie is top of the cops Saturday 12 September 2009

Richard Gardiner

He juggles a life on the track with a life on the beat – and he’s just been named South Wales’ top cop. Cardiff AAC's Ritchie Gardiner has high hopes of qualifying for the 2010 Commonwealth Games after being ranked Wales’ best marathon runner, and the fifth best in Britain. But the popular community sergeant has already won top honours closer to home for his sterling work in Merthyr and Rhondda Cynon Taf. He was named Police Officer of the Year by South Wales Police for his crime-busting efforts to tackle antisocial behaviour, off-road motorcycling and the problem of grassfires. He has also increased community engagement with hard-to-reach groups. Sgt Gardiner said: “I was so shocked to receive this award. It means such a lot to me.
